David Stringer's Attorney Won't Hand Over Document Unless Taken To Court
The attorney for embattled Rep. David Stringer says the Arizona House Ethics Committee can have the document they’re looking for — if they go to court.
Carmen Chenal told Capitol Media Services that the document from the DC Bar Association was given to her only on the condition that its contents be kept confidential, per the organization’s rules. She did say the letter indicated the Bar looked into Stringer’s 1983 arrest on sex charges, including a charge of possession of child pornography.
“They found that there was nothing there. And they found that there was no moral turpitude," Chenal said. "If they had found something really bad, don't you think that they would have just said, 'No, you can't practice law?'”
Her comments came 24 hours after the Ethics Committee voted to demand the letter with no promise of confidentiality.
