GREEN BAY, Wis. — The Green Bay Ethics Board has dismissed a complaint against former longtime Alderman Guy Zima — a move Zima says prevents him from clearing his name.

The complaint filed in January by Alderwoman Barbara Dorff accused Zima of violating the city's code of conduct for elected officials by mistreating city workers, officials and members of the public.

The allegation came a month after the Green Bay Press-Gazette reported Zima had asked a female city employee if she made a sex tape with her husband on their wedding night.

Zima served on the City Council for more than 40 years but was voted out of office in April, prompting Dorff to say her complaint was moot.

Zima advocated for keeping the complaint alive, saying he wants to prove the allegations false.
