Ethics Committee: Two House Members Under Investigation, One Cleared


The committee is also investigating Rep. Laura Richardson (D-CA) for allegedly failing to disclose real estate and other assets and for accepting an improper gift and special treatment relating to the foreclosure of her home.

The third, Rep. Sam Graves (R-MO), was cleared. The committee found Graves didn't violate any rules by inviting someone to testify to a small business committee, a man who held investments in the same renewable fuel cooperatives as his wife.

Graves lashed out at the Office of Congressional Ethics for even investigating the anonymous complaint in the first place.
