Rep.-elect Abigail Spanberger (D) questioned whether she will still be allowed to sell Girl Scout cookies as one of her daughter’s troop leaders after she becomes Virginia’s 7th Congressional District.

USA Today reported Saturday that the House Ethics Committee has never publicly addressed whether the sale of Girl Scout cookies is a conflict of interest.

The article goes on to state the following:

“Can I go in the neighborhood and sell Girl Scout cookies or are people going to feel compelled because I’m now their representative in Congress? Do you know what I mean?” Spanberger asked. “I don’t know what I’m going to do.”

An estimated 60 percent of women lawmakers who will serve in the next Congress are Girl Scout alumnae, the outlet noted.
