The House Ethics Committee says it is investigating Democratic Rep. Mike Honda of California for a possible ethics violation.

The 74-year-old Honda is in his eighth term representing the Silicon Valley area in Northern California.

The ethics panel declined to reveal details Monday, but the online publication San Jose Inside has reported that Honda may have violated House rules against coordination between campaign and official staffs.

San Jose Inside reported last year on emails that it said showed Honda's longtime chief of staff, Jennifer Van der Heide, and other House aides coordinated with Honda's re-election campaign on invitations to an official State Department event.

A spokesman for Honda's campaign said the ethics inquiry was prompted by "a politically motivated complaint" issued by Honda's opponent in the 2014 election.
