House Ethics Committee Is Very Busy, Post Reveals

Hosted by

Congress is supposed to enforce ethical standards on its own members, but ethics committee proceedings are highly secretive, and watchdog groups claim that not much really goes on. Now it's been accidentally revealed that more than 30 members and senior aides are being probed, including half of a subcommittee that controls Pentagon spending. This after the Washington Post was given a weekly report that a low-level staffer mistakenly placed on an accessible network.
