The State Ethics Commission handed Ralph Reed a victory over a complaint filed by Bill Simon.
The state Ethics Commission on Thursday dismissed a complaint against former Christian Coalition leader Ralph Reed, who lost a high-profile bid to become Georgia’s lieutenant governor.
The panel rejected six allegations filed in a 2005 complaint by political blogger William Simon that accused Reed of wrongdoing in his maiden political campaign. The charges related mainly to irregularities in Reed’s campaign finance filings.
The Commission also rejected claims made against Karen Handel and Cathy Cox, but did decide to proceed with claims against Ed Harbison (D-Columbus).
