Formal Ethics Complaint Filed On Obama:

WASHINGTON, D.C. — The American Conservative Union filed a formal complaint with the United States Senate Ethics Committee Thursday stating that Senator Barack Obama's purchase of property with convicted felon Tony Rezko's wife violated the U.S. Senate's gift ban.

ACU documentation notes that now-convicted felon Tony Rezko toured the Greenwood mansion property and adjacent side yard with Obama before Rezko's wife purchased the attached property on the same day Obama bought the Greenwood mansion.

ethics complaints alleging that Sen. Barack Obama (D-Ill.), the presumptive Democratic presidential nominee, broke the rules when he accepted a discounted deal on a 2005 mortgage loan, as first reported last week by The Post.

"Americans ought to be suspicious when a United States Senator such as Barack Obama, obtains a sweetheart mortgage deal," Judicial Watch President Tom Fitton said in a statement. "We have serious concerns that Senator Obama's mortgage may have violated the law and Senate ethics rules." The group filed separate complaints with the Federal Election Commission and the U.S. Senate Ethics Committee.

"The complaint asks the Senate Ethics Committee to investigate whether the favorable rates constitute a prohibited “gift” under Senate rules."

So did the Senate Ethics Committee investigate and if so what were their findings?
