Sen. Tom Coburn (above) was admonished today by the Senate Ethics Committee for having improper contact with an aide to former Sen. John Ensign.

The committee concluded that Bernhardt began setting up meetings between Hampton and DeMint “within days” of Hampton leaving the Senate. The committee said that although there was “troubling evidence of willful conduct,” it did not constitute a criminal violation.

At the same time, the committee also released updated guidance regarding the post-employment contact ban.
