Members of Congress get scare from security breach

The House Ethics Committee’s security breach gets Brody Mullins’ treatment here.

The accidental leak of a congressional ethics watchdog’s report offers a rare glimpse into the internal workings of one of the most secretive bodies on Capitol Hill, revealing that the panel has dealt with a far larger number of lawmakers than previously publicly disclosed.

The House Ethics Committee has said publicly that it is formally investigating possible breaches by a total of eight current lawmakers at the present time. A confidential report disclosed by the Washington Post suggests the panel either spoke with, or examined behavior by, at least 30 lawmakers in July as part of several inquiries into whether lawmakers violated congressional rules.
