Ethics Committee Chairman, Representative Julian Dixon, D-California took questions from reporters regarding the recent report on allegations against Representative Barney Frank, D-Massachusetts. The House Ethics Committee had announced the results of a ten-month investigation by a twelve member panel into the actions of Rep. Frank. The committee unanimously recommended that the full House reprimand Rep. Frank. This is the least punitive of the official sanctions that could have been recommended. The investigation involved the abuse of official privileges in relations involving Rep. Frank and a male prostitute. Rep. Frank invoked the congressional privilege to fix parking tickets incurred by prostitute Stephen Gobie while he was driving the congressman’s car. Rep. Frank also used congressional letterhead in memos to court officials supervising Gobie’s probation on drug and sodomy charges. close
