Congressman Ruben Kihuen is in a bit of a pickle. As reported by the Las Vegas Review-Journal, Kihuen is now the subject of an ethics complaint for improper fundraising practices.
At issue is Kihuen’s solicitation of campaign donations based on his co-sponsorship of a bill, which is a clear no-no according to the House ethics manual.
How much has Kihuen raised from this fundraising solicitation? Have there been any more like it? Will he commit to giving that money back if found in violation of House ethics rules?
With Kihuen facing a serious challenge from Las Vegas City Councilman Stavros Anthony, expect this issue to continue to hang over Kihuen’s head as the race kicks into gear.
