A group of Democrats has filed an ethics complaint against State Rep. Linda Harper-Brown following a News 8 investigation.

Harper-Brown and her husband had been driving two vehicles owned by a state contractor, but she never reported them as gifts.

Harper-Brown has denied wrongdoing, but has given up the use of the cars.

A spokesperson for the lawmaker said the group "Texas Values in Action Coalition" has ties to her opponent in November, and called this an act of desperation.
