Office of Congressional Ethics Admonishes Former Rep. Nathan Deal

Former Rep. Nathan Deal (R-Ga.), a candidate for governor who delayed his resignation from the House to vote against health care reform, was also fleeing an ethics committee investigation on his outside income. The  Office of Congressional Ethics has released its report anyway:

Nathan Deal far exceeded congressional limits on outside income and used his U.S. House office and staff to preserve a private stream of money coming from a no-bid state business deal, a report from the Office of Congressional Ethics has found… the congressional ethics office found that Deal made at least $75,000 in 2008 in earned income, far exceeding the limit of $25,830. Deal, a Republican candidate for governor in 2010, personally intervened with Georgia leaders to preserve an obscure state program that earns his company nearly $300,000 a year.

Deal is remaining in the race for governor. Unlike the Eric Massa scandal, this investigation came about after a newspaper, the Atlanta Journal-Constitution, ran an investigation.
