Investigation of FEC chair requested

Daily CallerThe ranking Republican on the House committee overseeing the Federal Election Commission asked the inspector general on Monday to investigate Democratic Commission Chair Ellen Weintraub, suggesting she improperly used her position for political purposes.

“It is my opinion that her ceaseless, pointed critiques of the president’s public statements are political opinions,” Illinois Rep. Rodney Davis wrote in the letter, which was addressed to FEC Inspector General Christopher Skinner and obtained by the Daily Caller. “This pattern of behavior is unbecoming of the FEC chair and may have possibly violated ethics regulations that we all as federal employees must abide by.”

I'm not sure what the rules are for the FEC chair -- does the Hatch Act apply? -- but it's supposed to be a non-partisan agency.
