McKenna faces 2 ethics complaints over county work

SEATTLE -- A lawyer and a citizen have each filed ethics complaints against Republican gubernatorial candidate Rob McKenna.
Kyle Olive and Kimberly Christensen said Thursday they submitted concerns this week to the King County ombudsman, arguing that McKenna violated various parts of the county ethics law during his time on the King County Council.
The filings come a few days after an Associated Press report that found McKenna's office discussed political issues during staff meetings and used a county fax machine to send an invitation on behalf of the state Republican Party. McKenna's archived records also contain hundreds of pages of campaign documents, such as fundraising lists and a packet titled "Rob McKenna for Attorney General."
McKenna has said that the office inevitably discussed politics and that most of the records appeared to have been accidentally left at the office by a staff member.
