Reps. Rush and Gutiérrez ordered to pay Treasury following congressional ethics probes

he House Ethics Committee asked two Democratic lawmakers from Illinois to pay the U.S. Treasury after investigations found one used office space in his district for nearly three decades without paying rent and the other paid a staffer-turned-contractor for work that was sometimes legislative in nature.  In lengthy reports released Thursday, the ethics panel reproved Reps. Bobby Rush and Luis Gutiérrez for violating House rules and called on them to pay $13,310 and $9,700, respectively.
