Coburn Reprimanded by Ethics Committee

The Senate Ethics Committee publicly admonished Sen. Tom Coburn (R-OK) "for an aspect of his role in the scandal that led to the resignation last year of Sen. John Ensign (R-NV)," the Oklahoman reports.

Coburn did not violate the law or Senate rules but the committee said a meeting with Ensign's former top aide was "improper conduct" that did not meet the "higher standards expected of a U.S. senator."
