Deal Cited for Ethics Violations

The Office of Congressional Ethics released a report on its investigation into former Rep. Nathan Deal (R-GA), alleging the lawmaker "violated House rules and used his office for personal gain in connection with his family's auto-salvage business," Roll Call reports.

"The report's release also marks an unprecedented move in the fragile relationship between the OCE and the House ethics committee: The OCE said it published its findings in the Deal case because the House ethics committee missed a March 22 deadline to do so -- even though Deal submitted his resignation just minutes before the deadline."

The report accuses Deal of six violations of House rules and found he made at least $75,000 in earned income for 2008, far exceeding the limit of $25,830.
