pronounced MAHR-kwayn // MU-lin

Mullin is the representative for Oklahoma’s 2nd congressional district (view map) and is a Republican. He has served since Jan 3, 2013. Mullin is next up for reelection in 2018.

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.

Dec. 23, 2013 House Office of Congressional Ethics recommended that the Committee on Ethics further review the allegations
Mar. 24, 2014 House Committee on Ethics published the Office of Congressional Ethics Report and Findings and the member's response.
Jan. 2, 2015 House Committee on Ethics reported that the review would continue into the next Congress.
Jan. 2, 2017 House Committee on Ethics reported that the review would continue into the next Congress.
Aug. 10, 2018 House Committee on Ethics concluded that because Rep. Mullin was already consulting with the House Committee on Ethics about how to handle his relationship to his family's businesses when the Office of Congressional Ethics began a separate investigation, the House Committee on Ethics concluded that Rep. Mullins was making a good faith effort to be in compliance with House rules and that apart from rectifying a $40,000 accounting error, no further action was warranted.
