Two California Congresswomen face ethics probe

A House committee has recommended an investigation of the alleged ethics violations of Reps. Maxine Waters and Laura Richardson, both Democrats from California.

From Politico:

Waters intervened with the Treasury Department last year on behalf of a minority owned bank, OneUnited, in which her husband owned stock. He also served on its board.

Richardson’s case revolves around her Sacramento home, which she purchased in 2006 but lost to foreclosure. The home was sold to a third party but later reacquired by Richardson. [The Office of Congressional Ethics] looked into the foreclosure issue and whether neighbors who cleaned up Richardson’s yard made an improper gift to the congresswoman by mowing the lawn and gardening.
