Sam Liccardo’s mayoral campaign sent an email blast Thursday announcing it had filed another ethics complaint against opponent Dave Cortese. There could be a couple issues with the new complaint, though.
Taking a page from the script of “Friends,” Dave Cortese defended his improper collection of campaign cash in the San Jose mayor’s race by stating that his campaign was on “a break.” The city’s Ethics Commission ruled last week that he should return $9,825.
Sources confirmed Monday that a complaint has been filed with San Jose’s Ethics Commission against the mayoral campaign of Dave Cortese. Questions are now being raised about whether he will have to return money that was collected immediately following the June 3 primary.
