When members of congress get embroiled in a scandal, its usually after they are sworn into office, but not for Florida Congressman Ross Spano (R), who inadvertently stepped into one days before taking the oath of office.

Spano loaned his campaign $174,000, but then penned a letter to the FEC stating that the funds were loans from two of this closest friend. Spano outed himself when he realized a mistake might have been made.

According to the FEC, no one has ever contacted them to correct a possible wrong by “outed” themselves like Spano did.

Spano says the issue is “behind him,” and the” loans have been repaid.”

“It’s behind me. Loans have been repaid. It most certainly was not intentional. It’s been our intention to be above board, absolutely transparent with everything that we did, and that’s whey when we saw there was a potential problem, we immediately, on our own accord, notified the FEC.”-Rep. Ross Spano

With the loan issue in his rear-view mirror, Spano spoke to the Floridian and said that one of the issues he will be focusing on is human trafficking.

Spano did say that he has already coordinating meetings up with Ivanka Trump and Sen. Marco Rubio (R) to discuss the the issue.

He didn’t say anything about introducing legislation, but Spano did say that he would “jump on board” any existing legislation that was already “in the hopper,” adding that the focus needs to also be on the those creating the demand (Johns) and not just the traffickers themselves.

We asked him about term limits, a campaign issue her ran on. Spano says that he is backing, and will cosponsor fellow Florida Congressman Francis Rooney’s ‘penny’ term limits proposal.

“I love it. No body’s going to do that,” said Ross when asked what he thought about members of congress receiving one cent pay after 12 years in office.
