A House ethics panel has determined there is no evidence that Rep. Maxine Waters (D-Calif.) violated congressional rules. The panel created to review Waters’s actions ultimately took the highly unusual step of hiring an outside lawyer who found no evidence that she knowingly violated House rules. When she learned that OneUnited, on whose board her husband once sat, was seeking federal bailout funds, she ended her involvement. These findings were reported on September 21, 2012 yet I see NO MENTION of these facts in Katie's article. Whose ethics are challenged, so-called "news editor", Katie Pavlich?
