Office of Congressional Ethics Refers 7 Cases to House Panel

Rep. Charles B. Rangel, D-N.Y., was subject to a rare formal censure on the House floor in 2010 for various House rules violations; Rep. Maxine Waters, D-Calif., was cleared in 2012 of charges that she used her influence on the Financial Services Committee to help the troubled bank where her husband was a stockholder, while her grandson and chief of staff ultimately received a letter of reproval.

Speaker John A. Boehner, R-Ohio, and Pelosi each pick four members to serve on the OCE, with the otherís consent. Former CIA Director and ex-Rep. Porter J. Goss, R-Fla., along with ex-Rep. David Skaggs, D-Colo., serve as co-chairmen.
