Bribery Investigation Begins


“The House ethics committee said Wednesday it will begin an investigation to determine whether Rep. Nick Smith, R-Mich., was offered a bribe to vote for a Medicare bill.

“The panel issued a brief statement saying it will announce the members of a subcommittee to look into the matter but will have no other comment until a final report is issued.

“Smith also issued a statement. ‘I respect the committee’s decision and believe that the committee should be permitted to conduct its work without further public comment by any party,’ he said.”
