House ethics committee moves ahead on Shuster probe

By Ann Curley/CNN

WASHINGTON (December 4) -- The House ethics committee announced Friday that its investigative subcommittee will proceed with interviews and depositions of witnesses in connection with its investigation of Rep. Bud Shuster (R-Pennsylvania).

The complaint against Shuster was filed by the Congressional Accountability Project, a public interest group, and accuses Shuster of being involved in a "tangled web of legislative, political, financial, and personal ties between Shuster and lobbyist Ann Eppard." Eppard was employed by Shuster for 22 years, leaving Capitol Hill to work as a highly paid transportation lobbyist.

In June, the ethics committee agreed to refrain from conducting interviews and depositions at the request of the Department of Justice, which was undertaking an investigation into similar matters.
