Ethics Complaint Filed Against Leading And Notable Democrats!


It seems like not a week passes by where Democrats are not facing some sort of ethics complaint or scandal.

An ethics complaint filed by a government watchdog group known as the Foundation for Accountability and Trust (FACT), alleges that leading Democrat lawmakers misused public resources and funds.

At the center of the complaint are social media posts from Nancy Pelosi, Alexandria Occasio-Cortez, Jamaal Bowman, and Ted Lieu.

FACT claims that these representatives broke the rules governing social media conduct by using public resources, paid for by the taxpayer, which includes their official websites and social media pages, for partisan political purposes.

Among the violations are both original social media posts and reposts, the latter of which is forbidden entirely in the current ethics rules. Here are just some of the posts mentioned in the lengthy FACT ethics report:

Executive Director of FACT Kendra Arnold stated:

“This is not an isolated incident. These violations are rampant and obvious, and clearly the OCE’s failure to act has encouraged continued violations.

This failure has also incentivized these Members to use House proceedings for political campaigning rather than doing what is in the best interest of the country.

Likewise, it is also clear why these Members are doing this, it’s for a political advantage and one that is paid for by the taxpayers.

The OCE has both the authority and a clear responsibility to ensure each ethics violation is dealt with swiftly.

Not doing so both permits clear violations to continue and erodes the public’s trust in the OCE itself.”

Below is the full ethics complaint filed by the Foundation for Accountability and Civic Trust against leading Democrat lawmakers.

Daily Wire explained:

FACT said that the violations are serious because they allow politicians to give a sense of official legitimacy to campaign accounts.

The complaint included about 91 pages of evidence documenting the violations of official House rules.

One example included Pelosi posting House January 6 footage from her official campaign account.
