13. There is no standing requirement. "Any person" can file a complaint.

See 18 USC 351:
( a ) Filing of Complaint by Any Person.—
Any person alleging that a judge has engaged in conduct prejudicial to the effective and expeditious administration of the business of the courts, or alleging that such judge is unable to discharge all the duties of office by reason of mental or physical disability, may file with the clerk of the court of appeals for the circuit a written complaint containing a brief statement of the facts constituting such conduct.

Of course, that doesn't mean that a complaint as stupid as this one will be go anywhere. The biggest risk is that it might give the court of appeals the opportunity to dismiss the complaint and thereby validate Cannon's conduct.
