GLOBE, Ariz. — Two ethics complaints have been filed against an Arizona lawmaker accused of having an affair with a lobbyist.

The House of Representatives on Tuesday did not release details of the complaints against Republican Rep. David Cook of Globe.

Last month an agriculture lobbyist was put on leave from her job after a newspaper raised questions about a possible romantic relationship with Cook.

Cook and Western Growers lobbyist AnnaMarie Knorr have said they're friends and their relationship did not cross ethical boundaries.

Cook did not immediately respond to requests for comment.
