When the Ethics Committee announced in late November that it was reviewing Young’s case, it also confirmed that it was looking into possible ethics violations committed by Rep. Alcee Hastings (D), which are believed to be related to a lawsuit filed in March that accused the Florida lawmaker of unwelcome sexual advances and subsequent retaliation against a staffer when he chaired the U.S. Commission on Security and Cooperation in Europe.
The committee now has until Jan. 11 to decide whether it will empanel a subcommittee to formally investigate the allegations against Hastings. At that point, if a subcommittee is not formed, the contents of the OCE report will be released.
