Ethics Watch Responds To McInnis Investigation Report

Today, Ethics Watch received a copy of a letter from the Office of Attorney Regulation Counsel advising that after a full investigation, the Office of Attorney Regulation Counsel (OARC) has determined that it could not prove by clear and convincing evidence that former Congressman Scott McInnis violated rules of professional responsibility in connection with materials he submitted to the Hasan Family Foundation.

We are satisfied that the OARC has conducted a full and fair investigation, and we accept their judgment as to whether to proceed. Had Ethics Watch not filed its request for investigation, it is possible that there never would have been an official investigation of this serious matter. Now that the results of the investigation have been made public, we consider the matter closed.
