The Office of Congressional Ethics (OCE) released its report on the review of Congressman Ed Whitfield and potential ethics violations regarding the lobbying contacts of Rep. Whitfield's wife Connie Harriman-Whitfield, a lobbyist for the Humane Society of the United States.  

The OCE board voted unanimously to "recommend that the Committee on Ethics further review the allegations concerning the granting of special favors or privileges because there is substantial reason to believe that Representative Whitfield permitted his wife to use his congressional office to advance and facilitate her lobbying activities and the lobbying activities of her employer in violation of House rules and standards of conduct."
