Mitchell Comments on Congressional Progressive Caucus Staffing, Structural Issues

23 April 2019 The Epoch Times News
Partner Cleta Mitchell was quoted in an article in The Epoch Times, “Ethical Storm Brewing for Congressional Progressive Caucus,” about questionable staffing arrangements and organizational structure of the Congressional Progressive Caucus. At issue is the dual role of Michael Darner, who serves as executive director of the caucus and as manager of its political action committee.

Mitchell said federal law and House rules strictly govern what congressional staffers can do in terms of outside activities and compensation. “The rule is that NO funds or resources of the House can be spent for ANY outside entity or organization; that is a federal law and a House rule,” she said. “So this person cannot use his House computer or office or other resources of his official office to do work for the Congressional Progressive Caucus PAC.”
