  •  I am bit confused by this (4.00)
    As the ethics commission is currently on hiatus, due to a GOP power play. They haven't held meetings. Therefore, no new ethics disputes CAN be filed.

    But beyond that, it is traditional for members not to accuse each other and to let outside independent groups do most of the accusing.

    In fact:

    Pelosi recently wrote to Hastert urging an ethics investigation into Reps. Tom DeLay (R-Texas), Bob Ney (R-Ohio), Richard Pombo (R-Calif.) and John Doolittle (R-Calif.) over their dealings with Abramoff. All four men have been mentioned in media reports relating to the ongoing Justice Department probe into Abramoff, although only Ney appears to be in any immediate danger of legal action by the department.
