RI GOP files complaint against state lawmaker

The Rhode Island Republican Party has filed an ethics complaint against a state representative for failing to disclose her employment with the city of Providence on mandatory fiscal disclosure forms.

Chairman Brandon Bell announced Wednesday he lodged a complaint with the state Ethics Commission against Democratic Rep. Anastasia Williams, of Providence, who works in the city's planning department.

Williams in 2012 and 2015 wrote "N/A" under the section of the annual Ethics Commission disclosure form where elected officials must list their sources of income. Williams has attributed the 2015 error to multitasking.

Meanwhile, Williams filed suit against the city last year after she was denied a grant to buy a home in 2012.
