Ethics panel postpones Rep. Waters’ hearing

Posted on November 19, 2010


The ethics trial of Rep. Maxine Waters was postponed Friday, as the House ethics committee found new documents connected to charges that she improperly tried to help a bank in which her husband owned stock.Waters, a senior member of the Financial Services Committee, was set to go on trial Nov. 29 before a jury of eight House colleagues. She has vigorously fought the charges, saying she did nothing more than set up a meeting between an association of minority-owned banks and U.S. Treasury officials.
