The House Ethics Committee found Rep. Rashida Tlaib (D-Mich.) violated campaign finance rules by receiving a campaign salary when she was no longer a congressional candidate –; but that she did not have “;ill intent”; in her actions.

The committee concluded that receiving a portion of her salary from campaign funds following the 2018 general election ran afoul of the Federal Election Campaign Act, according to a report released Friday.

But the committee noted that Tlaib”;s error was “;one of bad timing and not ill intent.”;

“;Representative Tlaib engaged in good faith efforts to comply with the relevant FECA requirements,”; the panel said. “;The Committee did not find that she sought to unjustly enrich herself by receiving the campaign funds at issue.”;

The Ethics Committee ordered that Tlaib pay back her campaign the $10,800 that she improperly received when she was no longer a candidate. Apart from the reimbursement and the issuing of the report, the committee said it would take no further action.

The report also noted that during her campaign, Tlaib received a small amount of campaign funds that was below the legal maximum she was eligible to claim.

The first Palestinian American elected to Congress, the Detroit-born Tlaib won her seat in the 2018 midterms and rose to prominence as a member of the progressive “;Squad.”; Tlaib triumphed in her 2020 primary campaign on Tuesday and will likely win reelection in her heavily Democratic district.
