Indicted Congressman Recusing Himself From Leadership Positions

Indicted Democrat Congressman Chaka Fattah has announced that he will recuse himself from leadership positions on the House Appropriations Committee. . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . .

Here is an excerpt from an NBC News story:

Fattah spoke to reporters outside his office Wednesday in the Rayburn House Office Building about the federal corruption charges against him. He said he has not yet received the indictment, but maintains his previous statement that he has “never been involved in any wrong doing, any unlawful activity and any misappropriation of federal funds.”

Fattah said he will recuse himself from his leadership positions on the House Appropriations Committee until the matter is resolved and noted “I am going to keep doing my work.”

He also said the matter should not be a “distraction” and the issue is “not Deflategate” because “This is a normal issue of which there are allegations after a very long running eight year investigation.”

    Could happen to a Rep also.

    An interesting disclaimer. Will we be seeing it on a lot of articles from now on?

    I’m reminded of an exchange in the movie Absence of Malice between Sally Field’s character and another reporter about the difference between “accurate” and “true.”
