Ethics Committee Details 'Lessons Learned' From Maxine Waters Case

Tom Williams/CQ Roll Call

"While Outside Counsel did not determine that the [chief of staff]'s efforts ultimately benefitted OneUnited, the House rules do not permit a Member or their staff to take specific actions that would, if effective, accrue to the financial benefit of the Member. The Waters Committee finds that Representative Waters' [chief of staff] violated House rules," the committee's report concluded.

Emma Dumain contributed to this report.

Correction: Sept. 25, 2012

A earlier version of this article incorrectly stated the day of the committee's announcement. It was Tuesday.
