Rep. Poliquin Opposes Proposed Changes to Office of Congressional Ethics

  Congressman Bruce Poliquin (ME-02) released the following statement in opposition to a proposal to adjust the Office of Congressional Ethics that was voted on internally by the Republican caucus yesterday:

 "While there should be important reforms made to the Office of Congressional Ethics that both Republicans and Democrats agree on, such as ensuring due process, I opposed this proposal," said Congressman Poliquin. "I believe it's important that these kinds of changes to the ethics office be made in a bipartisan effort and after robust debate and discussion from both parties.

 "In addition, the American People have spoken overwhelmingly in the last election in sending us here to fix the real problems facing our Nation. This is not their priority."
