Nashville Post: Duncan under ethics investigation
U.S. Rep. John J. "Jimmy" Duncan Jr. is under investigation by the House Ethics Committee, the AP reports. "The committee's announcement on Tuesday that it has decided to extend its review is the first public acknowledgement of the investigation. The review was prompted by a referral from the nonpartisan Office of Congressional Ethics. The Ethics Committee didn't say why it's investigating Duncan," the AP said.
“I would ask, is [John Duncan III] actually providing bona fide services?” said Brendan Fischer, the director of federal and FEC reform for the Campaign Legal Center, a nonpartisan and nonprofit election law organization. “If so, what are they? And is [his salary] fair market value? If it goes above fair market value then you are in violation of the law.”
