From the Daily News:
The House Ethics Committee announced for the first time yesterday that it is investigating Rep. Gregory Meeks for possible ethics violations.
The Queens Democrat is under a federal investigation that focuses, at least in part, on a $40,000 loan he received in 2007 from a Queens businessman.
As the Daily News previously reported, he failed to disclose the loan on his required financial disclosure forms for two years - and only paid it back once the FBI started asking questions.
It's unclear if the ethics committee inquiry is related to the loan.
