House Panel Recommends 3 for Further Investigation

WASHINGTON (AP) - House investigators have recommended that
three lawmakers be further investigated to determine whether
political contributions were improperly linked to votes on a huge
financial overhaul bill.
The independent House Office of Congressional Ethics recommended
that the member-run House ethics committee pursue potential rules
violations by Republicans John Campbell of California and Tom Price
of Georgia and Democrat Joseph Crowley of New York.
The ethics office recommended no further investigation of five
other lawmakers in the same probe. They are Democratic Reps. Earl
Pomeroy of North Dakota and Mel Watt of North Carolina; and
Republicans Jeb Hensarling of Texas, Chris Lee of New York, and
Frank Lucas of Oklahoma.
