Former Financial Services Staffer Banned by Rep. Frank

According to this report, Rep. Barney Frank has banned a former Financial Services Committee staffer from lobbying committee members and staff for an additional period beyond the mandatory one year ban under House rules.

“[Goldman’s] Mr. [Michael] Paese left our offices in September 2008, and was not allowed to communicate with any committee members or staff for a period of one year due to normal ethics restrictions that apply to all House and Senate employees,” said Frank aide Steven Adamske in a statement.

“Out of an abundance of caution due to the nature of financial regulation reform, the chairman has extended Mr. Paese’s recusal for another year,” Adamske said.

Roll Call has more, behind its pay wall.
