Congressman Mullin released the following statement after the House Committee on Ethics released a report providing guidance for Members of Congress as citizen legislators:
“As the Ethics Committee report clearly states, I have followed the guidance they provided since my first term in office,” said Mullin. “Now, the rules have changed.
“The new guidance in this report only proves that you can no longer be a citizen legislator. You have to be a career politician to serve in Washington, D.C.,” continued Mullin. “If I don’t fit the bill for a citizen legislator as a plumber, rancher, and someone who had never held a political office before, then who does?”
