Senate Democrats file ethics complaint against Hawley, Cruz over election challenge

Seven Senate Democrats filed an ethics complaint against GOP Sens. Josh Hawley and Ted Cruz over their Jan. 6 efforts to object to the 2020 presidential election results.

“By proceeding with their objections to the electors after the violent attack, Senators Cruz and Hawley lent legitimacy to the mob’s cause and made future violence more likely,” the senators wrote in a letter to Senate Ethics panel chair Chris Coons and vice chair James Lankford.

Democrats are requesting an investigation into the pair of senators over their challenge.
