Milwaukee - On Friday, the Milwaukee County Ethics Board referred a complaint to the District Attorney's Office alleging that Supervisor Peggy Romo West used County time to campaign and wore a campaign t-shirt while riding inside a County vehicle during the Labor Day parade in 2011. Apparently, Supervisor Romo West for the 12th District has not received any notice from the Ethics Board notifying her of the pending investigation and complaint being referred to the DA's Office for review.
The Ethics Board could have dismissed the complaint, but referring it to the DA's office indicates there in enough probable cause to proceed with the Ortiz complaint. Romo West has retained an attorney and believes she has done nothing illegal.
Hispanic News Network U.S.A. has made several attempts to contact Supervisor Romo West concerning the Ortiz Ethics Board complaint, but Romo West has declined to comment.
Ortiz also would not comment, confirm or deny, that she received a notice as well from the Ethics Board concerning the Romo West complaint findings.
