Ethics probe against Pomeroy droppedWASHINGTON – A House ethics review into North Dakota Rep. Earl Pomeroy has been dropped, according to a Washington-based political newspaper.
Roll Call reported late Monday that Pomeroy confirmed the Office of Congressional Ethics had finished its inquiry into possible ties between campaign contributions given to Pomeroy and the congressman’s vote on financial reform legislation late last year.
OCE recommended the House ethics committee not pursue the matter, the newspaper reported.
Pomeroy originally had been among a group of eight congressmen facing scrutiny by OCE. It is unknown if any of the other congressmen’s cases have also been dropped.
