Horsford, Arberry hit with ethics complaints

Jon Ralston has the scoop on separate ethics complaints that have been filed against state Senate Majority Leader Steven Horsford and former Assemblyman Morse Arberry.

The Horsford complaint is regarding the fundraising letter Horsford sent out a few months ago that critics argued essentially set up a "pay to play" operation for access in Carson City. After public scrutiny, Horsford withdrew the offer. The Arberry complaint alleges the former Assemblyman had a conflict of interest when he was seeking a lobbying job with the Las Vegas District Courts while still serving in the Nevada Assembly.

Both complaints appear to have merit and neither man comes out looking great.

We'll let you know how it turns out.
