AUSTIN (KXAN) — An Austin City Council member will attend an ethics hearing tonight over some controversial comments he made regarding same-sex marriage.
District 6 Council member Don Zimmerman had an ethics complaint filed against by him Mark Walters regarding some of his Facebook comments. The complaint claims Zimmerman compared gays to pedophiles in a debate over same-sex marriage.
Zimmerman says the complaint is “completely bogus.”
The second complaint filed by Walters accuses Zimmerman of not filing reports on campaign money.
The Ethic’s Commission hearing is scheduled for tonight.
