Guam - A second ethics complaint has been filed against Lieutenant Governor-elect Ray Tenorio. On November 29, Dr. William Weare submitted a complaint to Speaker Judi Won Pat alleging moral turpitude with regard to Tenorio's handling of issues and money regarding his natural born children by his first marriage.

In his complaint Dr. Weare alleges that Tenorio failed to inform the Guam Election Commission of his legal obligations and responsibilities. Weare specifically refers to Tenorio's child support case wherein he owed more than $10,000 in arrears.  He eventually paid the arrears and then made a $35,000 lump-sum payment to ensure payment for his kids until they turned 18.

Dr. Weare included court documents related to the child support issue as he contends they are proof that Tenorio tried to divest himself of his responsibilities as a father of five children. He's asked the Legislature to review the matter. 

Legislative minority legal counsel Tom Fisher says this is another "politically-driven accusation with no merit." He will move to dismiss the complaint.
