WASHINGTON — The House Ethics Committee says it has extended for seven months a contract with an outside counsel hired to investigate allegations against Democratic Rep. Maxine Waters and the committee handling of that investigation.

The ethics panel says the new contract with Washington Attorney Billy Martin would continue through July 31, 2012. Martin was retained in July to investigate the Waters case, with the contract set to expire at the end of this year.

The investigation centers on whether Waters tried to aid a troubled bank, Boston-based OneUnited, where her husband owned stock. The focus is on a meeting the California Democrat requested between Treasury Department officials and representatives of an association representing minority-owned banks, including OneUnited.
