REPORT: Democratic Rep. Laura Richardson could face jail time for ethics violations. “New documents disclosed in a complaint from the watchdog group Citizens for Responsibility and Ethics in Washington (CREW) appear to show California Democrat Rep. Laura Richardson and her staff clearly violating congressional ethics rules and potentially federal law.

Richardson didn’t just violate House rules, she likely committed crimes,’ said Melanie Sloan, CREW’s executive director.”
