Office of Congressional Ethics Ends Reed Probe

The Office of Congressional Ethics has ended its preliminary review of Congressman Tom Reed inadvertently paying a personal tax bill with campaign funds.

The Buffalo News reports the non-partisan investigative office informed Reed last Friday that it had ended its probe.

The newspaper was not able to reach that office to find out why they terminated the inquiry.

The probe stemmed from an April 2012 incident in which Reed paid a $4,200 tax bill on his family vacation home on Keuka Lake using a check from his campaign account.

That’s against federal election law as well as House rules.

Reed quickly corrected the error and reported it to the federal election commission explaining his mistake.
