State panel fires back at gubernatorial candidate

The State Ethics Commission, in an unusual public rebuke of a Beacon Hill lawmaker, is disputing state Senator Dan Wolf’s assertions that the agency had not previously raised a red flag about the potential ethics violations posed by the two contracts that his firm, Cape Air, has with the Massachusetts Port Authority.

The potential conflict came to light Wednesday, after Wolf, a Democrat who recently launched a bid for governor, made public an ethics ruling saying that he would have to exit the race and public office if he did not either divest from Cape Air or pull the airline out of the airport.
