THE HILL: Ethics panel extends probe of Rep. Andrews. “The House Ethics Committee on Friday announced it has extended its investigation into Rep. Rob Andrews over allegations that the New Jersey Democrat misused campaign funds to take private family trips. The secretive panel also released a lengthy report from the Office of Congressional Ethics (OCE) detailing the allegations, including charges that Andrews tapped tens-of-thousands of dollars in campaign funds to cover a 2011 trip to a wedding in Scotland, as well as multiple visits the same year to Los Angeles with his daughters.”
Remember when Nancy Pelosi was going on about a “culture of corruption,” and promising to “drain the swamp?” Yeah, me neither.
