Jahana Hayes' challenger calls for probe of her children's role in campaign

Republican George Logan wants House Ethics Committee to investigate


The campaign of U.S. Rep. Jahana Hayes, D-5th District, employs two of the congresswoman’s adult children as part-time staffers, a legal arrangement under federal campaign rules so long as the jobs are real and the pay is fair market.

But hours after the Daily Caller posted a story Tuesday night about the jobs, her Republican challenger, George Logan, called on the House Committee on Ethics to investigate the legitimacy of their employment.

“Jahana Hayes was elected to Congress to serve the residents of Connecticut, not enrich herself and her family,” Logan said in a statement. “The Fifth District deserves a representative who puts people above profit.”

Candidates for federal office are barred from using campaign funds for personal use, but salary payments to family members are allowed unless those payments exceed market value or if “bona fide service” is not provided.

2. The Republicans are such scum. That said, I wish she hadn't given them the ammo to go after her.
