The Florida’s Ethics Commission said Wednesday that it found 11 potential ethics violations by freshman Rep. David Rivera (R-FL) from his time as a state legislator. Rivera, who has denied the charges, is accused of misuse of campaign funds and accepting money from a company that may have affected his voting. Rivera is reportedly already under FBI investigation. These mounting allegations against Rivera come despite House Republican Leader Eric Cantor’s (R-VA) promised “zero tolerance policy” for ethical scandals.
