Hawaii congresswoman and presidential candidate Tulsi Gabbard was supposed to file a financial disclosure form with the Federal Election Commission 30 days after becoming a candidate, or by May 15.

As of May 29, she has not submitted the required paperwork.

That’s according to a letter obtained by the Center for Public Integrity from the FEC warning her that she’s in violation of ethics rules.

Dave Levinthal, federal politics editor and senior reporter for the Center for Public Integrity, tweeted this:

Gabbard also has yet to file her annual financial disclosure with the clerk of the U.S. House of Representatives. The congresswoman asked for an extension, which gives her until August to file her report.

Before you go . . .
