New York Post Talks to Bryson Morgan on Potential Ethics Probe for Rep. Omar

August 29, 2019, The New York Post

Rep. Ilhan Omar's soap-opera love life threatened to become more of a political thriller Wednesday as watchdog groups questioned whether her alleged affair with a married member of her paid political-consulting team constituted an ethics violation.

 . . .

"There's nothing that under federal election law prohibits a campaign from paying a candidate's family member for someone with whom the candidate has a romantic relationship provided that it's a payment for bona fide services paid to the campaign," said Bryson Morgan, an expert in political law at Caplin & Drysdale.

. . .

"A complaint like this can still be a headache," Morgan added. "It is still something that Rep. Omar's campaign will need to respond to that will take time, energy, [and] legal expenses."
