Ethics hearing opens
Ethics Committee Chairman Tom Loertscher, R-Iona, opened the ethics committee hearing this morning saying, "The purpose of our meeting today is to make a determination as to whether or not there is merit enough on this complaint to go further. This is not a hearing into the matter in any way." Hart is participating by phone, but when asked if he was on the line, his attorney, Starr Kelso, answered for him.
