House ethics panel continues probe of WI lawmaker

WASHINGTON (AP) — The House Ethics Committee says it will continue investigating a Wisconsin congressman's stock dealings following a media report that that raised questions about his portfolio. Republican Congressman Tom Petri requested the investigation in February. Petri has since said he will not run for re-election in November, retiring after 18 terms in Congress. The ethics committee said Monday it will extend its investigation. In a joint statement, the Republican chairman and ranking Democrat said an extension does not reflect any judgment by the committee. Petri said in a statement he is confident the ethics committee will find that he acted properly. Gannett Wisconsin Media published articles in February drawing a link between companies that have business before Congress and stock Petri owns in those companies.
