The Maricopa City Council unanimously voted to exonerate Councilwoman Julia Gusse of all accusations brought forth by InMaricopa owner Scott Bartle in an ethics complaint at Tuesday night’s council meeting.

The complaint was in reference to a 2018 email exchange between Bartle and Gusse that got heated, and it listed 10 different alleged violations Gusse had committed. Bartle wrote the following under Description of Facts at the time of filing on April 16:

“Councilmember Gusse violated at least 10 clauses of the City’s Code of Ethics policy when she willingly, intentionally and unsolicitedly engaged me via email to criticize how I operate my private business. In the process, she successfully accomplished her stated goal of withholding advertising revenue from my company.”
