The records became available July 15.
The latest FEC records show Hayes is still paying her son David around $300 per month.
Hayes also reimbursed herself $250 dollars for “petty cash.” The FEC has strict rules about petty cash reimbursements.
Republican Connecticut candidate George Logan has called on the House Committee on Ethics to investigate the legitimacy of her children’s employment. Barbara Ellis, the manager of Hayes’ reelection campaign, said Hayes’ daughter handles campaign scheduling for her mother and Hayes’ son does digital and tech support.
