August 27th, 2021 by WCBC Radio

An investigation shows Representative Alex Mooney (R-2nd Dist., WV) allegedly spent funds flagged for his campaign on personal expenses including family vacations. 

The investigation conducted by the Office of Congressional Ethics also showed he allegedly failed to properly report more than $40,000, however, the representative’s campaign says the OCE has said it rejected many of the allegations.

According to an article published by the CQ Roll Call, the inquiry shows Mooney allegedly spent almost $3,500 through his campaign committee in West Virginia fast-food restaurants since 2017, which was the beginning of his second term.
