LINCOLN — A Wisconsin watchdog group filed an ethics complaint Tuesday against a Papillion state senator, alleging that he failed to disclose gifts he received on a trip to the tar-sands oil region of Canada.
State Sen. Jim Smith said he expected scrutiny of the trip and had sought, and followed, the advice of Nebraska officials in reporting his expenses.
