Watchdog files ethics complaint alleging Nunes failed to disclose investments

By: Jacqueline Thomas, The Hill, July 11, 2018

An ethics watchdog has filed a complaint against Rep. Devin Nunes (R-Calif.), alleging that the lawmaker failed to fully disclose investments in three California companies.

The nonpartisan Campaign for Accountability says Nunes failed to disclose income from a 2006 investment in Alpha & Omega Winery until 2013, despite the winery’s “apparent success.”

The complaint also states that Nunes had invested in Alpha & Omega’s sister winery, Phase 2 Cellars, in 2015. Nunes’s investment reportedly amounted to between $50,001 and $100,000, despite the winery requiring that shareholders make a minimum investment of $200,000.

The group claims that Nunes “may have accepted an improper gift in violation of House rules” if he was allowed to invest less than other investors.
