The House Ethics Committee has extended its investigation into whether Tennessee Republican Rep. John J. Duncan Jr. misused $100,000 from campaign and leadership PAC funds on personal expenses — including baby showers and wedding showers at a country club — as detailed in a new report made public Wednesday.

The 57-page report from the Office of Congressional Ethics, a nonpartisan ethics entity, recommended that the committee conduct further review of Duncan and his family’s use of campaign funds for their own vacations and expenses.
Duncan, the longest-serving Tennessean in Congress, announced last year he will not seek reelection for his seat.
Duncan denied the accusations, saying in a statement that he has “never personally taken one penny out of my campaign account for personal or family expenses.”
