Stark Under Ethics Investigation
Rep. Pete Stark (D-Calif.), the outspoken chairman of the Ways and Means health subcommittee, is under investigation by the House Ethics Committee, the panel announced by quietly posting a statement on Christmas Eve. The panel hasn’t identified what potential infringement it’s looking at, but it notified Stark’s office in the middle of last month.
What comes now? We might not know until Feb. 10, when the committee is scheduled to announce how it intends to approach whatever allegations it’s looking into.
