As per reporting requirements of our rules, the following is a summary of the Election Committee’s (EC) activities for the A-22 campaign and election cycle:

A complaint was officially made. As per the rules established by the House of Delegates a subcommittee of the EC was convened to investigate the allegation. After a thorough investigation, including interviews of multiple persons of interest and review of the evidence, the subcommittee presented their findings to the EC as a whole. Committee members with a conflict of interest recused themselves from decisions regarding the merits of the complaint and penalty. The remainder of the committee determined that a campaign violation had occurred and that given the seriousness of the violation, an announcement to the House was in order. Subsequently, the announcement was developed and read by the Speaker to the House on Monday, June 13.

Following the announcement, a crucial portion was misquoted in the press. In addition, misinformation was spread suggesting that the EC had retracted its findings. As a result the EC, wanting to clarify that it stood by its findings, decision, and the statement, asked the speaker to re-read the relevant portion of the announcement to the House on Tuesday, June 14.
