Ethics panel reviews claims against Tlaib, 2 Republicans

WASHINGTON (AP) — The House Ethics Committee says it is reviewing allegations of wrongdoing against Michigan Reps. Rashida Tlaib and Bill Huizenga and Florida Rep. Ross Spano.

The committee did not reveal the nature of the complaints Monday, but the offices of the three lawmakers say they are related to campaign spending and not the members’ official congressional duties.

Tlaib is a freshman Democrat from Detroit, while Huizenga, a Republican, is in his fifth term representing west-central Michigan.

Spano, a Republican, is a freshman from central Florida.

The ethics panel stresses that the review “does not itself indicate that any violation has occurred, or reflect any judgment on behalf of the committee.”

The panel says it will announce next steps in November.
