From The Nerve SC: Liberty SC House Rep Has Conflict Of Interest With His Printing Business Rep. David “Davey” Hiott, R-Pickens & Chairman of the House Agriculture, Natural Resources & Environmental Affairs Committee, reported spending a total of $6,500 in 2012 and last year on his business – the Hiott Printing Company – for what he labeled as “printing materials” and “printing for campaign.” He faced opposition in both the 2012 and 2014 Republican primaries, though he had no formal opponents in the general elections in those years. And other lawmakers have spent campaign funds on Hiott’s business, The Nerve’s review found. Sen. Larry Martin, R-Pickens and the Senate Judiciary Committee chairman, for example, reported spending a total of $6,905 from November 2008 through December last year, mainly for what he listed as “Christmas cards.” Rep. Bill Whitmire, R-Oconee, reported spending a collective $4,135 in 2012 for what he labeled as “campaign cards” and a “mailer.” State ...

Is it just me or does something smell fishy here.State Legislator's company gets grant from State. Ethical.Why is it we don't trust politicians? The Indiana Economic Development Corp. is giving Mainstreet Property Group an economic development grant of $345,000 for the construction of a nursing home in Terre Haute that is expected to net House Speaker Pro Tem Eric Turner $1.8 million. The financial incentive was originally offered by the state so that Mainstreet, which is owned in part by Turner and his son, could move its headquarters from Cicero to Carmel. But now the grant will go toward the construction of a $15.3 million project in Terre Haute, one of many Mainstreet projects Turner helped save when he defeated legislation that would have banned the construction of new nursing homes. Gov. Mike Pence had placed a hold on the state aid last year after The Associated Press reported Turner's connection to the company. But an IEDC review found "no conflict of interest" and cleared the money for the Turne ...

Ethics Committee announces probe of House GOP leader
Marcus and Michele Bachmann could be heading to prison as the Department of Justice is investigating the couple for possibly breaking at least 11 election laws in 2012. Although Bachmann may have technically retired from Congress, in reality she quit because the criminal investigations were closing in on her. This is the first time that Marcus Bachmann has been named in reports as part of an investigation. The same troubled presidential campaign that the Department of Justice is looking at is also the subject of an investigation in Iowa, an FBI investigation, and a House Ethics Committee investigation. The Iowa and FBI investigations are centered on secret payments that her campaign made to state Sen. Kent Sorenson in exchange for his support and help in the 2012 Iowa caucuses. The House Ethics Committee is investigating Bachmann’s potential misuse of staff and campaign finances to promote her poorly selling biography Core of Conviction. The DOJ investigation stems from information obtained in the FBI i ...

Doc Hastings announced that he is retiring after 20 years of representing Washington’s 4th congressional district. Jaxon Ravens, Chair of the Washington State Democratic Party, released the following statement: “Whereas Senator Patty Murray, Senator Maria Cantwell, and Washington’s congressional Democrats fight every day for Washingtonians, Rep. Doc Hastings has ascended the party ranks of a dysfunctional and irresponsible Republican Congress. "Hastings is just the latest proof that House Republicans can no longer defend this reckless Republican Congress that stacks the deck against the middle class. This began with his broken pledge in 1994 to run for re-election only twice. As Chair of the House Ethics Committee, he covered up for corrupt Party leadership and blocked investigation of House Majority Leader Tom DeLay.

Rangel Tet Chat House ethics trial and censure On November 15, 2010, Rangel's formal ethics trial began. He walked out of the hearing at the start, saying that he was unable to afford representation after having paid his previous lawyers over $2 million, and arguing unsuccessfully that the proceeding should be delayed until he could arrange for a legal defense fund. The following day, Rangel was found guilty on 11 of the 12 charges against him by the adjudicatory subcommittee of the House Ethics Committee (2 of the original 13 charges having been combined). Two of the charges were focused on his actions with regards to soliciting funds and donations for the Rangel Center from those with business before the Ways and Means Committee; four were for improper use of Congressional letterhead and other House resources in those solicitations; one was for submitting incomplete and inaccurate financial disclosure statements; one was for using one of his Harlem apartments as an office when he had Congressional deali ...

YOU AS AN IDAHO CITIZEN CAN WITNESS IDAHO senators AND house members BEING CONDESCENDING AND VERY THREATENING TO ANY WOMAN OR VOLUNTEER OR STAFF IN THE STATEHOUSE AND NOT BE HELD ACCOUNTABLE. YOU AS A CITIZEN CANNOT FILE A COMPLAINT. Thank you for your email. Idaho’s rules on these matters are not what they should be. Although the conduct you are describing constitutes conduct unbecoming of a House member and is a violation of the House ethics rules, those rules only allows a House member to bring a charge. Citizens, public employees and even Senators may not do so. Furthermore, when a House member brings a charge against another House member, the charge remains confidential until the House Ethics committee finds sufficient merit to the charge to allow it to go forward. If the accused member resigns, as in the case of Mark Patterson, that is the end of it. Believe it or not, the current House ethics rule is an improvement over what we used to have, but it is not as strong as it ought to be. Too m ...
Thanks to you, Rep. Bill Chumley was exonerated when the SC House Ethics Committee dropped all charges. I'm sure the outcome would have been very different if leadership thought they could sneak this through. Thank you for calling, writing, and attending the hearing last Monday . . . whether in person or by live stream. But, in truth, last Monday's vote should have never happened. When the complaint against Rep. Bill Chumley was first filed by his political opponent from an earlier election campaign, the Ethics committee could have thrown it out as frivolous. His opponent's complaint claimed that bringing an expert academic witness in to testify at a subcommittee hearing on a bill before the SC House violated a SC Ethics Law that bans use of the state airplane for election campaign purposes. Last Monday, committee member Leon Stavrinakis declared that the vote by the Ethics Committee earlier this year to find "probable cause" was unanimous. Stavrinakis even bragged about being the one to make the motion . ...

Thank you to all the folks who have written or called me to offer their prayers and support regarding the hearing coming up tomorrow. I truly appreciate it and I am humbled to have so many friends and supporters. This has been a long nerve-wracking process for me and I am hopeful that it will be finally resolved on Monday when I am able to present my case to the members of the House Ethics Committee.

Jackson Graft Case Further Indicts Black Caucus Posted 02/20/2013 06:48 PM ET Corruption: Rep. Jesse Jackson Jr.'s guilty plea to fraud charges raises fresh questions about the Congressional Black Caucus. It's a group with many laudable goals, but why do so many in it succumb to corruption? A disproportionate share of ethics cases have been brought against this exclusive club. According to a 2012 National Journal study, five of the six lawmakers under review by the House Ethics Committee were Black Caucus members. Yet just one in 10 House members belong to the group.

Charles Rangel, D-N.Y., who was later convicted of accepting gifts from donors with business before his tax-writing panel and 11 other ethics violations. All told, the Journal says, an astonishing one-third of sitting black lawmakers have been named in an ethics probe at some point in their Hill careers. ...
