From The Washington Post:
In what may amount to an election-year tit-for-tat, House Democratic leaders are privately weighing whether to seek an ethics investigation into how Republicans handled the sex scandal that ended Indiana Rep. Mark Souder’s career.
The idea arose Wednesday after Rep. Mike Pence (Ind.), chairman of the House Republican Conference, told reporters that he learned last week of his GOP colleague’s extramarital affair — three days before House Minority Leader John Boehner (Ohio) said he first heard about it. Pence said that he approached Souder on the House floor Thursday after hearing rumors of the romance.
