He's already been under scrutiny after failing to pay his taxes on time. Now Congressman Tom Reed is the subject of two federal ethics complaints about that tax problem.
Ontario County Democratic Committee Chairman John Hurley says he filed the complaints with federal officials Monday. The complaints claim that Congressman Reed illegally used campaign funds to pay the personal property taxes.
The congressman says he did accidentally use that campaign money to pay those back taxes, but once he realized his mistake, canceled the payment and made it from his personal account.
