The OCE referred its findings last year to the House Ethics Committee, which disclosed Monday that it has extended its review of the matter.

Former staffers told the OCE that they were asked to run errands for Lamborn's wife, Jeanie, and described her as being "deeply involved" in the operations of her husband's congressional office.
