Congressman Luis Gutierrez has fired the Chicago lobbyist who also worked on the congressman’s staff for 10 years.  

A USA Today investigation revealed, Doug Scofield collected more than $500,000 in federal pay.

Questions arose about whether Scofield exploited his government job to win special favors for his lobbying clients.

So Gutierrez asked the House Administration Committee whether his relationship with Scofield was improper.
