Alleged misconduct & resolution
In 2013 Mullin was investigated for receiving excess outside earned income, endorsing companies or products as part of outside employment and serving as a board member or officer of outside companies --- his family's businesses. Because Mullin was already consulting with the House Committee on Ethics about how to handle his relationship with his family's businesses when the Office of Congressional Ethics began its investigation, the House Committee on Ethics concluded that Mullin had been making a good faith effort to be compliant with House rules and that apart from rectifying a $40,000 accounting error, no further action was warranted.
