Against Florida Democratic Rep. Maxwell Alejandro Frost, a watchdog organization on Wednesday reportedly filed an ethics complaint that requests an investigation into whether the congressman abused official resources for political purposes.
The Foundation for Accountability and Civic Trust (FACT) filed the complaint, which requests that the Office of Congressional Ethics (OCE) look into the claims.
According to the complaint, Frost may have broken federal law and House ethics guidelines governing Congress’s use on social media by posting on his campaign account on X using images from official government sources.
FACT provided many examples of Frost’s posts, some of which included images from occasions that Frost attended.
Frost, who is 26 years old, was first elected to Congress in November 2022. Before entering the congressional race, Frost worked for the pro-gun control organization March for Our Lives, which has a left-leaning stance.
FACT noted interactions between Frost’s campaign account on X and official House images, work products, and posts from his official congressional account.
Reps. Sean Casten (D-IL) and Ruben Gallego (D-AZ) are two more members of Congress who have received similar complaints from FACT this year.
