Attorney picked as counsel for ethics committee

Guam - The Legislative Committee on Ethics and Standards met today to discuss two complaints filed against Lieutenant Governor-elect Ray Tenorio. One, submitted by Harold Cruz, alleges the senator engaged in unethical and fraudulent acts by using the last name "Tenorio" prior to it being legally changed. The second was filed just last month by Dr. William Weare.

Weare accuses Tenorio of moral turpitude claiming the senator did not disclose to the Guam Election Commission a child support case wherein he owed more than $10,000 in arrears. Committee chair Senator Judi Guthertz announced that Attorney Robert Kutz has been chosen as the interim legal counsel, as Attorney Anthony Camacho recused himself from the matter.

Kutz says he's not ready to issue a report, telling KUAM News, "However, I have had an opportunity to look at the documents examine some of the back ground I have not spoken to the senator but have talked to Tom Fisher; he and the senator have been very cooperative at this point, though I believe its premature to get to far into these allegations because these complaints are not verified."

Kutz informed senators he would provide a form to the committee in order to have the complaint verified. The board will reconvene a week from tomorrow at noon in the public hearing room at the Guam Legislature.
