Letter from CLC to U.S. Senate Select Committee on Ethics Regarding Sen. Ted Cruz

Date

Campaign Legal Center (CLC) ​filed a complaint with the Senate Ethics Committee requesting an investigation into whether Sen. Ted Cruz violated Senate ethics rules by converting campaign funds to personal use. Sen. Cruz’s campaign committee spent up to $18,000 on Facebook ads exclusively promoting Sen. Cruz’s book, for which he stands to receive royalties, seemingly in violation of the personal use ban.
