House Ethics Committee expands investigation into Dem. Rep. Sheila Cherfilus-McCormick – EVOL

The U.S. House Committee on Ethics announced on Tuesday that the panel is expanding an investigation into allegations that South Florida Democratic U.S. Rep. Sheila Cherfilus-McCormick may have violated campaign finance laws.

The committee initially announced in late December an investigative subcommittee to determine whether Cherfilus-McCormick “may have violated campaign finance laws and regulations in connection with her 2022 special election and/or 2022 re-election campaigns; failed to properly disclose required information on statements required to be filed with the House; and/or accepted voluntary services for official work from an individual not employed in her congressional office.”

She represents the 20th Congressional District.

According to the statement released on Tuesday by Mississippi Republican Michael Guest, chair of the House Ethics Committee, and Pennsylvania Democratic Rep. Susan Wild, the ranking member, the inquiry has been expanded to determine whether Cherfilus-McCormick “violated the Code of Official Conduct or any law, rule, regulation, or other standard of conduct applicable to the performance of her duties or the discharge of her responsibilities, with respect to allegations that Representative Cherfilus-McCormick: (1) engaged in improper conduct in connection with community project funding requests; (2) misused official funds for campaign purposes; and/or (3) violated campaign finance laws and regulations
