Speaker Nancy Pelosi (D-Calif.) on Thursday appointed Rep. Bobby Scott (D-Va.) to the House ethics panel to fill the vacancy caused by the death of Chairwoman Stephanie Tubbs Jones (D-Ohio) last month.

Scott joints Democratic Rep. Gene Green (Texas), the acting chairman, and Reps. Lucille Roybal-Allard (Calif.), Mike Doyle (Pa.) and Bill Delahunt (Mass.).

“I am honored by the Speaker’s appointment to the Ethics Committee for the remainder of the term,” Scott said in a statement. “As a member of the Committee, I will do my best to uphold the integrity of the U.S. House of Representatives.”
