WASHINGTON (AP) — The House Ethics Committee won't investigate eight House members arrested during an immigration protest near the Capitol earlier this month.
The committee published a report Thursday saying each lawmakers had made a $50 "collateral payment" and that charges had been dropped. The committee says there's no reason for further investigation because the local charges are resolved.
Democrats Luis Gutiérrez and Jan Schakowsky of Illinois; Raúl Grijalva of Arizona; Keith Ellison of Minnesota; Joseph Crowley and Charles Rangel of New York; John Lewis of Georgia and Al Green of Texas were arrested during an Oct. 8 event that blocked a main street near the Capitol.
Capitol Police estimate 200 others were also taken into custody at the time.
