The Rhode Island Ethics Commission has voted unanimously to launch an investigation into Lt. Governor Dan McKee and his failure to disclose a trip to Taiwan in 2017. The complaint was filed earlier this month by the Rhode Island GOP.
Executive Director of the Ethics Commission Jason Gramitt tells WPRO News that since McKee has already admitted to making a mistake on his filings, “all that’s left to do is just decide whether the Lt Governor is going to take responsibility for that omission, which it sounds like he is, and the commission may issue a small fine.”
McKee’s failure to disclose the trip was first reported by WPRI-TV’s Ted Nesi just days before McKee left with his wife for another trip to Taiwan. [FULL STORY]
