Noe complaints targetted by CREW
From a release today:
Citizens for Responsibility and Ethics in Washington (CREW) announced today that it has prepared an ethics complaint against Representative Bob Ney (R-OH). CREW is releasing the complaint in the hopes of finding a Member of the House of Representatives willing to certify that the allegations are made in good faith and to forward the complaint to the House Committee on Standards of Official Conduct for consideration.
CREW drafted the complaint, filed by then Congressman Chris Bell (D-TX), for which Tom DeLay was admonished last year.

“CREW is now publicly asking Members of the House to consider forwarding the complaint against Representative Bob Ney to the Ethics Committee because Mr. Ney has committed serious, unethical and possibly illegal acts,” Melanie Sloan, executive director of CREW, said today. “Representative Ney needs to be held accountable for his unethical conduct,” Sloan said.
