LOL! Adam Schiff Slammed With Ethics Complaint Over Ad One Day After Announcing Senate Bid
In his quest for power, this week, pencil-necked Rep. Adam Schiff announced a bid for the Senate seat currently held by Dianne Feinstein, before she has even announced her retirement.
In a hilarious turn of events, he was hit with an ethics complaint just one day later.
Schiff used video footage of himself going after Trump on the Senate floor, but the video is considered a government video and not his to use.
The Washington Examiner reports:
Adam Schiff faces ethics complaint for political ad one day after announcing Senate campaign
Rep. Adam Schiff (D-CA) is facing an early obstacle to his 2024 Senate bid after a nonprofit ethics organization filed a complaint to the Office of Congressional Ethics accusing the California Democrat of using government resources to boost himself politically.
Schiff announced his intent to run for Senate on Thursday, releasing a campaign video that featured video from then-President Donald Trump’s first impeachment trial in 2019, of which Schiff was the lead prosecutor. The ad prompted a complaint from the Foundation for Accountability and Civic Trust, which requested the Office of Congressional Ethics to investigate whether Schiff “abused official resources for political purposes.”
“In the present case, Rep. Schiff is clearly using official government video for campaign purposes in violation of federal law and the House ethics rules,” the group wrote in a letter to the Ethics Office on Friday. “The Office of Congressional Ethics is responsible for ensuring each Representative fulfills the public trust inherent in the office and that they comply with the House’s ethical standards. Therefore, we urge the Board to immediately investigate whether Representative Schiff used official resources for campaign purposes in violation of the House ethics rules.”
In his campaign announcement, Schiff used video of him speaking on the Senate floor during Trump’s impeachment proceedings. Ethics rules prohibit members from using government resources in their campaign materials, which include photographs or videos taken from inside the House or Senate.
This is the ad in question. You can see he uses more than one clip from the impeachment hearings. Hilariously, he also includes a clip of Trump calling him a pencil neck.
Our democracy is at great risk. Because GOP leaders care more about power than anything else.
And because our economy isn’t working for millions of hard working Americans.
We’re in the fight of our lives—a fight I’m ready to lead as California’s next U.S. Senator. pic.twitter.com/H0Pa0EhhMu

The people of California may actually make this clown a senator. It’s pathetic and sad.
