FRANKFORT, Ky. (AP) -- The Legislative Ethics Commission has dismissed a complaint filed against Republican agriculture commissioner candidate James Comer, who stood accused by political opponents of using a state employee to work on his campaign during regular business hours.
In an order filed Tuesday afternoon, the ethics panel said the complaint against Comer contained "significant errors."
Comer, a state lawmaker form Tompkinsville, is running for agriculture commissioner against Democrat Bob Farmer, a Louisville marketing strategist.
At issue were Facebook postings that the Farmer campaign alleged were filed by a state worker on state time. The ethics panel found no such evidence, concluding that the complaint was false.
