Use the publicly available contact information below to call, voicemail, email, or even fax an ethics complaint to our House of Representatives Ethics Committee Members, who have the jurisdiction and the ability to investigate and punish those in the House who are breaking the law.

According to the Rules, you may not remain anonymous, you should follow the formalities, and submit the appropriate documents or whatever you might have as evidence (including news media links), but this committee ONLY wants FACTS, and may dismiss your communication if you include anything speculative.
