“The Democratic party of Nebraska has asked the Office of Congressional Ethics to review Rep. Don Bacon’s official Twitter account for political activity. The request stems from two tweets the Omaha Republican published, one last November and the other in January, criticizing his predecessor,” former Rep. Brad Ashford (D). “The tweets represent a misuse of official resources, the Nebraska Democratic party has alleged. Official Twitter accounts are covered financially by the Members’ Representational Allowance, federal tax-funded account that members cannot use for political activity.” (Roll Call)
