Rep. Barbara Lee (D-CA) called for an ethics investigation into White House spokeswoman Sarah Sanders for using her government Twitter account to criticize a restaurant that refused to serve her and her family over the weekend during an interview on CNN’s “State of the Union” on Sunday.

Sanders and several of her family members were refused service at The Red Hen restaurant in Lexington, VA because Sanders works in the Trump administration.

On Saturday, Sanders tweeted:

“Also just with regard to Sarah, she used her government account for taking on this private restaurant, a private business. I personally think she should be referred to the Office of Government Ethics,” Lee said.

CNN’s Jake Tapper asked Lee whether she thought that was unethical.

“Yeah, if you use a government account to attack a private business on personal time, that’s not right,” Lee said.
