The House Ethics Committee unanimously found Wednesday that embattled Rep. Laura Richardson (D-CA) violated House rules and treated its probe of her with "utter disdain."
The committee voted to fine and reprimand the California Democrat for inappropriately using Congressional staff and resources for campaign and personal activities.

The panel asked Richardson pay a $10,000 fine for her transgressions by December 1. A statement by the top members of the Ethics Committee, Reps. Jo Bonner (R-AL) and Linda Sanchez (D-CA), indicated that Richardson agreed to the seven charges of misconduct. The full House must still approve the Ethics report. That is expected to come Thursday.

Those Democratic women out of California are pieces of work, aren't they? B Boxer, "Don't call me Ma'am.", N Pelosi, the Botox 1%er, Maxine, "I'm an angry, and corrupt, African American woman." Waters, all immediately come to mind.

Only California could bring us this entertainment,

The Ethics committee is a big farce. It's come to mean nothing.

You don't toe the party line they will throw you to the wolves. I don't know anything about this woman but I'm guessing she didn't toe the party line. I'm guessing Janice Hahn did. She can still cry racist though since Richardson is a member of the CBC. That is usually what happens.
