Citizens for Responsibility and Ethics in Washington, a watchdog group, filed an ethics complaint Thursday against Rep. Louie Gohmert (R-Texas) alleging he improperly used campaign funds to pay for a trip to England.
In its complaint, CREW asked the Office of Congressional Ethics to conduct an investigation into whether Gohmert should have charged his campaign more than $6,000 for a trip to England in November and December 2014. …
“Rep. Gohmert’s legendary tirades may put him in high demand for public speaking engagements, but that doesn’t give him license to bill a luxury London vacation to his campaign,” CREW interim Executive Director Anne Weismann said.
Gohmert spoke to the Cambridge Union Society, Rothermere American Institute, the Federalist and Henry Jackson Societies, a high school and a joint group from both the House of Lords and House of Commons in England’s parliament.
