House Ethics Committee Opens Investigation Into Two Congressmen
Rob Andrews and Don Young may come from different parties, but they have one thing in common:
The House Ethics Committee plans to launch formal investigations of Rep. Rob Andrews (D-N.J.) and Rep. Don Young (R-Alaska), continuing long-simmering accusations against both lawmakers.
Andrews faces allegations that he violated House rules and federal law by using campaign funds to pay for personal trips to Scotland and Los Angeles and by using a graduation party for his daughter to raise campaign cash.
Young has faced years of accusations surrounding donations made to a legal defense fund — but Tuesday’s announcement appeared to signal new charges are under review.
Should be interesting to see how these develop.
