Democratic Rep. Shelley Berkley Faces Ethics Probe #NVSen

Rep. Shelley Berkley is back in the hot-seat again, where she belongs! Looks like her ethics problems are catching up with her.

From the National Journal:

Rep. Shelley Berkley, D-Nev., faces an ethics investigation in the midst of her bid for U.S. Senate this year, as she hopes to knock off incumbent Sen. Dean Heller, R-Nev.

It is not clear what the subject of the probe is. The investigation was first revealed on Friday by the House Ethics Committee, which announced that it had received the case on Feb. 9 from the Office of Congressional Ethics, an independent office that acts as a grand jury of sorts for the formal ethics panel.

Spokesmen for Berkley’s campaign and office did not immediately respond to a request for comment.

Last fall, the Nevada Republican Party filed an ethics complaint against Berkley over the congresswoman’s efforts to help a kidney transplant program in Nevada that has ties to her husband, a physician. The New York Times last September detailed five years of Berkley actions “in which she pushed legislation or twisted the arms of federal regulators to pursue an agenda that is aligned with the business interests of her husband.”

Whatever the issue, the existence of a probe in an election year is an unwelcome development for Democrats who hope that Nevada is one of a very few states where they could swipe a Senate seat back from Republicans.
