More Fossella and Bob Ney
Yesterday we learned of Rep. Vito Fossella's verdict returned by the House Commission on Congressional Mailing Standards in regards to the complaint filed by Stephen Harrison. Fossella essentially was fined $60,000, but ultimately cleared of 10 of 11 charges.
So who exactly in on this House Commission on Congressional Mailing Standards? Well up until Monday, September 18th, Rep. Bob Ney was chairman of the House Commission on Congressional Mailing Standards.
