House Ethics Committee Clears Waters

September 25, 2012
The House Ethics Committee voted 10-0 on Friday to clear Rep. Maxine Waters of violating House rules after an investigation into dealings with OneUnited Bank, the committee said in a statement on Tuesday.

"The Committee has unanimously determined that the evidence does not establish, to the standard of clear and convincing evidence, that Representative Waters violated House rules. It appears that Representative Waters recognized and made efforts to avoid a conflict of interest," the committee said in a statement.

The committee also unanimously determined that Waters' Chief of Staff, Mikael Moore, "took certain actions on behalf of OneUnited when he knew, or should have known, of Representative Waters' personal financial interest, despite Representative Waters' instructions to avoid the conflict," according to the committee.
