House panel seeks reprimand of Long Beach congresswoman

by Jonathan on August 2, 2012

The House Ethics Committee calls for Long Beach Democratic Rep. Laura Richardson’s reprimand for violations such as unconventional staff and resource use. An uncommon yes vote could further harm her campaign.

WASHINGTON — She reportedly made congressional staffers work on her campaign into the night — and when one asked to go home at 8 p.m., she ordered that person to do more phone calls. Staffers described her as verbally insulting and intimidating. And she used taxpayer money when planning a political fundraiser named “Democratic Idol,” having members of Congress singing karaoke.
