The Texas Republican is reportedly being investigated for accepting illegal campaign contributions from two staffers, Jason Posey and Thomas Dodd, both of whom were subsequently fired.
Posey and Dodd allegedly made six contributions totaling $15,000 to Stockman using family members. They subsequently filed an amended Federal Election Commission report that said those contributions were wrongly “attributed to family member(s) as a result of miscommunication with accounting about joint charitable donations and other family/personal funds.” They then refunded those contributions “as the corrections may have deemed them not permissible.”

The legislation provides incentives for government contractors to pay a living wage and other benefits that would help low-income workers.
