Guam - Independent
congressional candidate Jonathan Diaz has filed a formal ethics complaint
against Minority Leader Frank Blas, Jr.
In a letter to Speaker Judi Won Pat and the Guam Election Commission, Diaz
states he believes an ethics violation occurred when Blas failed to recuse
himself from voting in favor of Bill 488 during an emergency session earlier
Bill 488 authorizes the GEC to reconfigure the Primary Election
ballot to accommodate Independent candidates. Diaz argued that by failing to
recuse himself from the vote, Blas violated the Legislature's Standing Rules, as
he would directly benefit from this new law.
Blas is running under the Republican ticket for Guam's
delegate to Congress.
