A nonpartisan watchdog group in an ethics complaint Wednesday asked Congress to investigate how Rep. Devin Nunes (R-Calif.) is paying for several ongoing lawsuits against critics.

In its complaint to the Office of Congressional Ethics, the Campaign Legal Center notes Nunes's annual congressional salary of $174,000 would likely not cover the costs of the various suits, indicating that he is either receiving free or discounted legal services or working on contingency with an attorney, all of which would require him to disclose the assistance.

Nunes has yet to file a legal expense fund with the Office of Congressional Ethics.
