LA Times: Republicans on the House Ethics Committee offer to investigate DeLay

By Mary Curtius, Times Staff Writer

WASHINGTON -- Republicans on the House ethics committee today offered to investigate House Majority Leader Tom DeLay's travel and "other actions," if Democrats would end their boycott of the panel.

Democrats quickly rejected the proposal, calling it a political ploy that did nothing to restore confidence in the chamber's ability to investigate its own.

DH:  Democrats stuck by their position that the Republicans' reconstituted rules for the ethics committee made the committee ineffective.
