An ethics panel gave Rep. Greg Meeks out of New York a bit of trouble for an ill-advised loan he received from a real estate broker. According to the panel, Meeks failed to report the transaction, which led to the inquiry. But fear not, it appears that Meeks isn’t going to get any problems from the panel, as they’ve determined that he’s done nothing wrong. All he has to do now is hurry up and make things right.
Rep. Gregory Meeks, D-NY., failed to disclose a $40,000 loan from a real estate broker on his financial disclosure reports but there’s no credible evidence that the errors were knowing or willful, the House Ethics Committee concluded Thursday.
