Florida members among those named in House ethics investigations

DC's abuzz over a report in today's Washington Post about a memo accidentally posted online by the House Ethics Committee. The July memo details how the committee's investigators "have been scrutinizing the activities of more than 30 lawmakers and several aides in inquiries about issues including defense lobbying and corporate influence peddling," according to the Post.

It said "nearly half the members of a powerful House subcommittee in control of Pentagon spending," including Rep. Bill Young, R-St. Petersburg, are under scrutiny. Young's office didn't respond to the paper.

The Post is also reporting today that the committee sought information from Rep. Connie Mack, R-Cape Coral, about a $10 million earmark in his district that connects Coconut Road near Fort Myers to Interstate 75. His office told the Post that the inquiry does not focus on him and that he had no involvement with the project.
