The US House Ethics Committee announced on Friday that it is investigating four members of Congress including Rep. Michele Bachmann.
The committee, which mostly operates in secret, is also investigating Rep. John Tierney (D-Mass.), Rep. Tim Bishop (D-N.Y.) and Chief Republican Deputy Whip Peter Roskam of Illinois.
This House Ethics Committee investigation of Bachmann follows a referral from the Office of Congressional Ethics, an independent body which had already been investigating the congresswoman.
