The Democratic Congressional Campaign Committee (DCCC) on Monday filed an ethics complaint calling for an investigation into the House GOP campaign arm and its chairman, Rep. Tom Emmer (R-Minn.) over the use of “trackers” filming lawmakers in Capitol Hill office buildings.

The DCCC argued in a letter to the Office of Congressional Ethics (OCE) that the National Republican Congressional Committees’s (NRCC) use of employees tracking and videotaping Democrats from competitive districts in the Capitol complex is a violation of House rules that prohibit the use of official resources for political purposes.

The article goes on to state the following:

“The House Ethics Manual clearly and unequivocally states that House buildings and offices constitute official resources and must not be used for campaign or political activities. But that is exactly what Representative Emmer, through NRCC, appears to have done here,” DCCC executive director Lucinda Guinn wrote in a letter to OCE chief counsel Omar Ashmawy.

    I don’t want to hear anything about “ethics” from the most unethical, anti-American group in America.
