Rep. Waters Wants Ethics Committee Investigated

Tuesday, 07 Dec 2010 02:41 PM


WASHINGTON (AP) — Rep. Maxine Waters will ask the House to investigate the ethics committee's decision to place two of its lawyers on administrative leave. The personnel action has delayed her ethics trial.

The two attorneys are still on the payroll, but their absence ensures that Waters' demand for a trial this year will not be met. Both women worked on her case and one was the lead attorney.

The California Democrat, a senior member of the Financial Services Committee, is accused of attempting to obtain a federal bailout for a bank where her husband owns stock and formerly was a director.

She has fought the charges, saying there was no case.
