Democrats accuse Van Orden of charging campaign for cost of D.C. trip

MADISON – Wisconsin Democrats filed a complaint with the Federal Elections Commission against a Republican congressional candidate alleging he used campaign funds to pay for a trip to Washington D.C. where he attended a rally that preceded the insurrection on the U.S. Capitol. 

The complaint filed Monday by Devin Remiker, senior elections director for the Democratic Party of Wisconsin, alleges Third Congressional District candidate Derrick Van Orden improperly used leftover money raised by his 2020 congressional campaign against U.S. Rep. Ron Kind to pay for hotel and airfare costs to Washington the week of the Jan. 6 attack.
