House ethics panel concludes ‘Squad’ member Tlaib violated campaign law, must repay $10,800

The House Ethics Committee unanimously ruled Friday that Rep. Rashida Tlaib, a Michigan Democrat and member of the rebellious group of liberals known as “the Squad,” violated election law by paying herself campaign funds after winning the 2018 election.

The committee concluded that Tlaib’s violations were the result of “bad timing” and not “ill intent” and that her only penalty should be to repay within a year $10,800 in monies she improperly collected.

The ruling was made public just a few days after Tlaib won a tough primary race on Tuesday.

“The Committee has determined that Representative Tlaib’s receipt of a portion of the post-general election payments violated FECA’s personal use restrictions because: (1) it represented a salary payment that covered a time period after she ceased being a candidate; and (2) it represented a deferred compensation payment that covered a time period after she ceased being a candidate,” the committee’s official report declared.

Candidates for federal office may pay themselves a reasonable salary during a campaign, which must cease after Election Day.
