Scalise Hit With Ethics Complaint For Fake Video

The Hill reports:

The House Democratic campaign arm has filed a formal ethics complaint against Republican Whip Rep. Steve Scalise (La.), who shared a video doctored to alter the wording of a question posed by activist Ady Barkan to former Vice President Joe Biden.

The complaint filed by the Democratic Congressional Campaign Committee on Wednesday alleges that Scalise violated the guidance of the House Ethics Committee, which in January ruled that publication of “deep fakes” violates House ethics rules.

And nothing will come of it.
