Representative Haley Stevens (D-MI) stands accused of violating House ethics after fundraising off of an unruly speech on the Capitol floor.

A government watchdog alleges the problem for the first-term lawmaker arose when she used a dramatic photo from her speech in a fundraising solicitation letter.


Per The Detroit News:

The nonprofit Foundation for Accountability and Civic Trust, a conservative group, alleges the use of the image violates House ethics rules against using government resources or coverage of floor proceedings for partisan campaign purposes and is asking the Office of Congressional Ethics to investigate.

“The ethics rules explicitly prohibit members from using House floor photographs for campaign purposes and from soliciting campaign contributions tied to votes,” said the foundation’s executive director, Kendra Arnold, in a statement.

“It is important these laws are followed and enforced to protect taxpayers and ensure every vote is taken on its merit and not for political gain.”

Stevens’ campaign on Tuesday said it would aim to prevent the issue from recurring.

Stevens’ speech from last Friday raised eyebrows when she refused to yield the floor after running over her allotted time.

Eventually, her microphone was cut.

She has no care about what she says and does on the floor of the House. She, like many other liberals, thinks that the Rules do not apply to her. She deserves to be censured, in accordance with House Rules, so that this behavior does not recur.

UNFORTUNATELY, correct!

Let’s just hope ppl like Tliab and Haley are one-term Congress people from Michigan and summarily replaced with conservatives who show common sense, respect for the rule of law, and know how to shut their mouths vs these loud-mouth Dems.

Throw her and the squad out. I’m tired of all this nonsense in congress. Our elected representatives should act like ladies and gentlemen. If not they should be gone.
Term limits should be voted in also. Then you wouldn’t have representatives trying to act like Queens and kings.

Its not Representative of Michigan. The Dems that got in where from Democratic strongholds. No matter how you vote they always find a way to come out on top. Lots of dead and illegals to nul you vote
