Venice City Council Member Bob Daniels has been hit with an ethics violation charge by an area woman.
The Herald-Tribune reports Venice resident Dawn Champiny claims Daniels conducted a background search on her using a city-issued iPad.

She claims Daniels then emailed the results of the background check to his wife’s email address, putting the results on the city’s public email server.

Daniels told the paper “It’s a false charge; I did nothing wrong,” but failed to elaborate.

Champiny is asking Daniels to step down over the issue.
