The House Ethics Committee is launching a further investigation into the campaign finances of Rep. Lori Trahan, the Boston Globe reports.
The announcement comes after congressional investigators found “substantial reason to believe” that Rep. Trahan violated campaign finance laws in her upset election victory in 2018.
Investigators with the Office of Congressional Ethics found that her husband donated $300,000 to her campaign, far exceeding the $2,700 allowed, and her campaign appeared to have “intentionally misreported” the days the donations were made.
Investigators added that the Massachusetts Democrat and her husband had refused to cooperate. They have recommended that the committee issue subpoenas to her, her campaign, and her husband.
