Herr files ethics complaint

Herr issued a statement on March 17, 2014, saying he filed a complaint against incumbent Ed Markey with the Senate ethics committee.[5][6] Herr accused Markey of using his position to manipulate stock.[5] Markey was under fire for writing letters to federal regulators urging an investigation into the nutritional supplement firm Herbalife.[5]

"All you have to do is connect the dots to easily see that Sen. Markey used his public office to manipulate the stock of a publicly traded company in order to financially benefit a campaign donor," Herr said.[5]
