CASPER, Wyo. (AP) — U.S. Rep. Cynthia Lummis is among 248 members of the U.S. House to pay reimbursements to family members from campaign cash.

There’s nothing illegal in $33,000 in Lummis reimbursements to her family documented in a Citizens for Responsibility and Ethics in Washington report, but the practice has raised concerns. The Associated Press  Lummis’ reimbursements to family include about $9,000 paid to her husband, Alvin Wiederspahn for rent, food, gas, lodging and sign supplies during the 2008 election cycle.

Lummis also paid her husband $11,000 for rent and postage during the 2010 election cycle.

Lummis says she kept detailed records and has complied with both the letter and spirit of campaign laws.

Iowa and Louisiana have laws that limit or prohibit campaign payments to family or their businesses.
