    Another House Ethics Investigation

    The House ethics committee announced Wednesday that it had voted to establish an investigative subcommittee to review a misdemeanor charge against Rep. Bob Filner (D-Calif.) for his alleged assault of a Dulles airport baggage employee in August.

And even since the October 7 election Filner has sought to further inflame Mexican passions against Schwarzenegger.
