Kaptur says she was never approached by ethics panel

The Hill is reporting on the latest saga on the Kaptur's involvement with the PMA scandal investigation. Kaptur wants to clarify that she never was approached by the full ethics panel, but has been interviewed by the Office of Congressional Ethics (OCE). Reps. Jim Moran (D-Va.) and Marcy Kaptur (D-Ohio) both spoke to the Hill about this.

But both said late last week that the full House panel has neither interviewed them nor asked either for any information about their interactions with or political contributions from the former lobbying group....

The article also says:
Kaptur also said the OCE interviewed her and requested documents from her office, which she readily provided.

Happy Veterans Day!

Odd that. She doesn't seem to have any of the Defense PAC's donating to her

I guess we should be grateful though for the handout handful of 'earmarks' for Toledo $18,800,000 to help us out of "our" economic slump.
"Our" because I've noticed the Congresswoman doesn't use a Pay Toilet without reimbursing herself  from her War Chest Campaign Fund.

Truthfully I don't know how any of this earmarking works or understand exactly what she is being investigated for but, her role in this and in some other thing(s) I am famiLiar with


Are you guys ready to support publicly-financed campaigns, or are you only against contributions to Ms Kaptur?

I haven't decided on that question yet. What's Obama's stance?

Latta takes money from the oil industry, and then lies about cap & trade on their behalf. Is he ethical?

C'mon guys....lighten up!

Democrat corruption doesnt count...

“Political correctness is a doctrine, fostered by a delusional, illogical minority, and rabidly promoted by an unscrupulous mainstream media, which holds forth the proposition that it is entirely possible to pick up a turd by the clean end.”
