House Ethics Committee extends Rep. Gutierrez review
The House Ethics Committee announced Monday that it is extending its review of Chicago Congressman Luis Gutierrez.
The announcement comes from a report produced by the Independent Office of Congressional Ethics.
The OCE found that Gutierrez used his official budget to pay nearly $600,000 to The Scofield Company for training and other “non-legislative”assistance.
The company’s senior partner, Doug Scofield, is a former Gutierrez chief of staff.
The Congressman’s reps released a statement Monday saying they would continue to “cooperate fully” with the review.
