Andrews faces ethics investigation

U.S. Rep. Rob Andrews is the subject of a House ethics investigation, The Hill reported today.

The House Ethics Committee did not disclose the charges against the South Jersey congressman but said it would announce its decision by Aug.31, The Hill reported.

In November, Citizens for Responsibility and Ethics in Washington filed a complaint against Andrews with the Federal Election Commission alleging the congressman spent more than $9,000 to pay for a trip to Scotland with his wife and children and more than $10,000 to host a graduation party for his daughter.

The complaint also alleged that Andrews donated $12,500 to a local theater where his daughter was performing and $8,700 to the Rutgers Law School in Camden, where his wife is associate dean of enrollment.

Andrews’ campaign account spending was first detailed in the Star Ledger.
