Ethics Panel Probes Black NY Lawmaker In Gift Scandal

WASHINGTON - A House ethics probe of black Queens congressman Gregory Meeks is focusing on possible criminal charges for his failure to report a $40,000 payment from a businessman that appears to have been an illegal gift. Meeks originally claimed that he received the money as a loan.

The same committee that recently found Harlem Rep. Charles Rangel violated ethics rules released a 67-page investigator's report Friday that blasted Meeks for being uncooperative with the probe.

A statement released by the panel said the investigation will try to determine whether Meeks "failed to disclose a payment he received in 2007 in a timely manner."
