Panel dismisses ethics complaint against Cotton

An ethics panel has dismissed a complaint that accused Arkansas Republican U.S. Senate hopeful Tom Cotton of illegally soliciting contributions during a radio interview at his congressional office in Washington.

The congressman's campaign Wednesday released a copy of a March 13 letter from the House Ethics Committee dismissing the state Democratic Party's complaint. Democrats complained last October about an interview Cotton gave to a radio talk show host. The letter said the panel unanimously voted to dismiss the case.

The letter was released as former Arkansas Chief Justice Jack Holt filed a new complaint against Cotton. Holt is asking the Office of Congressional Ethics to consider whether Cotton broke House rules by not specifying clients for whom he provided consulting services.

Cotton's campaign says the new complaint is without merit.
