Rep. Buyer to retire

Rep. Buyer will retire from Congress, according to this report.  The report references an ethics allegation involving a charity.

Questions were first raised in August about the way the Congressman ran his nonprofit Frontier Foundation, which operated out of his campaign offices in Monticello, Ind. Buyer later made structural changes to the organization and moved it out of his campaign shop, where his son Ryan served as its director.

The watchdog group Citizens for Responsibility and Ethics in Washington filed a complaint against Buyer, alleging he “violated ethics rules by abusing a charity for private purposes and by trading legislative assistance for donations to the charity and a job for his son.”
