Dem Rep. Richardson Says House Investigation Is Racist

Democrat Laura Richardson told reporters today that the bipartisan House Ethics Committee was investigating her because she’s African-American.

The AP reported, via FOX Nation:

Rep. Laura Richardson charged Friday the House Ethics Committee has singled her out for scrutiny because she’s African-American.

Richardson, D-Calif., effectively announced the committee’s investigation before the panel revealed it, accusing fellow lawmakers of ignoring wrongdoing by others in order to focus on her.

The Ethics Committee is looking into whether she improperly used staff for political purposes. The committee is composed of five members from each party.

The ranking Democrat is a Hispanic, Rep. Linda Sanchez of California. Other Democratic members are Rep. Donna Edwards, an African-American from Maryland; Rep. Pedro Pierluisi, who represents Puerto Rico; John Yarmuth of Kentucky; and Joe Courtney of Connecticut.

The five Republicans are all white men. They are Rep. Jo Bonner of Alabama, the committee chairman; Rep. Michael McCaul of Texas; Rep. K. Michael Conaway of Texas; Rep. Charlie Dent of Pennsylvania; and Gregg Harper of Mississippi.
