“Ethics probe finds California Rep. Honda may have mixed official and campaign business”


A congressional ethics panel announced Thursday that Rep. Mike Honda (D-Calif.) may have improperly used tax-payer funded congressional staff and resources for campaign activity in 2012 and 2014.

A report from the Office of Congressional Ethics (OCE) found that there “there is substantial reason to believe” that staffers assigned to Honda’s House office were involved in work that benefited his campaign. The OCE is an independent body that investigates ethics allegations and refers issues to the House Ethics Committee for further review. The Ethics Committee plansto extend its probe into Honda’s behavior.
