A government watchdog group has filed a complaint against Senate President David Williams.
The group is accusing Williams of having violated a state ethics code by asking lobbyist to help raise money for Republicans.
Common Cause of Kentucky filed the complaint on June 14, 2007, with the Kentucky Legislative Ethics Commission. They said Williams asked lobbyists to help raise up to $50,000 each for Senate Republican campaigns.
A chairman of the watchdog group asked the commission to inform lobbyists that a potential ethics violation occurred.
A spokeswoman for Williams didn’t immediately return a call for comment.
Under law, lobbyists are barred from giving to a legislator’s campaign or to the Senate Republican Caucus Committee.
