Waters Won't Push For Vote On Ethics Committee Investigation


Waters introduced the resolution on Tuesday. She wants an investigation into the committee after two of its attorneys, who were working on a case concerning Waters, were suspended.

Waters was accused by the committee of three ethics violations, stemming from allegations that she improperly helped a bank with ties to her husband to receive TARP money. But before her scheduled hearing was to take place, the ethics committee announced it was sending the matter back to investigation because new documents had surfaced.

Waters has dismissed that as an "excuse" and says the committee doesn't have a case against her.
