Jacobs calls for investigation into Democratic Party nepotism

 

Upon hearing that Reginald King (D-CA-9) had been appointed as House Judiciary Committee Chair, Congresswoman Jacobs called for an immediate House Ethics Committee investigation into the appointment. "Traditionally the Speaker of the House controls committee appointments," noted Jacobs, "and in this case the Speaker of the House is the chair's brother. The Ethics Committee should look into how much influence Speaker King had into this appointment, and whether the House Majority Leader, a third King brother, was involved also." 

 

"If the committee appointment was made on the basis of familial ties rather than merit then all three King brothers should immediately step down," Jacobs continued. "I don't know how they do things in Compton but I know that in all my years of government service in Northern Michigan I've never seen anything like this."
