Virginia Republican Rep. Tom Garrett turned his congressional staffers in his own “personal servant”, according to a new report, as you pick up your food, and chauffeur his children and clean up after his dog.

A staffer told Politico to do that, Garrett personal errands was “effed up.” The website offers anonymity to paint four former aides, a portrait of a “deeply dysfunctional” office”, where the volunteers were asked to perform tasks that are outside of your typical Congress-jobs during working hours.

“I can work hard,” a former aide said. “What I can’t stand, is to be completed only everyday tasks, but [asked] of him and his wife, who had nothing to do with the place.”

A spokesman for Garrett declined to comment when Fox News asked about the claims. In a statement to Politico, speaker Matt-Miss the allegations called “unfounded.”

To bat the tasks of the helper to claim Garrett, and his wife, Flanna, you have to do, according to the story: watch and clean-up mix, drive Flanna work after your Jack-Russell-spitz-in the supermarket and drive their children from their home in Scottsville, in his home district to Washington – a three – hour trip.

Politically said to increase if true, this could ethics topics for Garrett, as the house of the legislature prohibits the use of personnel for unofficial tasks.

It comes under the uncertainty about Garrett’s future political plans. This week, although he said he planned to back for Congress.

“There is no way in hell, I’m not going to. again to be in the year 2019, as a member of the Congress, representatives of the 5 District of Virginia,” he said. “Also a hell of a lot to the game.”
