Indiana GOP Files Ethics Complaint Against Joe Donnelly

The Indiana Republican Party filed a formal ethics complaint against Sen. Joe Donnelly (D-IN) on Monday for allegedly using taxpayer-funded resources for campaign purposes.

Two months ago, a Politico story reported that Donnelly’s Senate campaign was engaging in potentially illegal coordination with Democrat-aligned super PACs.

Kyle Hupfer, the Indiana Republican Party Chairman, said in a statement Monday, “Democrat Senator Joe Donnelly, in an ethically challenged act of desperation, directed his official taxpayer-funded staff to film his meeting with Judge Brett Kavanaugh and then to post video, with no audio, on their official YouTube page so his campaign and outside entities could use the footage.”

“Not only has he played political games by dragging his feet and taking an entire month to meet with Judge Kavanaugh but now Joe Donnelly is playing political games with the meeting itself by using official resources for campaign purposes – a clear ethical breach,” Hupfer added.
