Democrat Rep. Cindy Axne is identified as the subject of an ethics complaint calling for an investigation of her stock portfolio. The complaint alleges Axne “purchased and sold more than 40 assets,” with “up to $645,000 in 2019 and 2020, then failed to properly report the transactions.” The complaint against Axne also claims she “knowingly did so in violation of the STOCK Act.”

In response to this investigation, Air Force Combat Veteran and US House Candidate Zach Nunn, who is looking to defeat Axne in 2022, issued the following statement:

“As Iowans, we need to be able to trust our elected officials are working to serve our community, not enrich themselves. Sadly, it appears that Rep. Cindy Axne uses her time in Congress to make a profit instead of fulfilling her duties to Iowans. At the time of these illegally hidden stock trades, Congresswoman Axne was a member of the Financial Services Committee. She can claim any excuse, but the reality is that there is mounting evidence she broke the laws she was responsible for writing.”
