Ethics Panel Probing Massa Allegations

The committee's statement suggests that its probe will focus more on the response to the allegations from other lawmakers and staff members, rather than on Massa himself -- perhaps because it's more difficult for the committee to investigate a former member. The panel will consider whether other members or staff had knowledge of Massa's misconduct, and failed to properly report it, and will look into "whether monies or other payments may have been misappropriated."
