1/3 UPDATE TO MY STATEMENT REGARDING THE OFFICE OF CONGRESSIONAL ETHICS
House Republicans have now scrapped plans to obliterate the Office of Congressional Ethics (OCE). I want to thank everyone who registered their outrage about this plan; your voices made a difference today. As the Chair of the Task Force that wrote the measure creating the OCE, I am relieved it is not being dismantled today. But make no mistake, the effort to gut the OCE is a stark example of House Republicans’ approach to governing. Unfortunately, I think we will see a lot more of this in the days and weeks ahead. I won’t stop fighting and I hope you will stay active too.

Rep. Capuano's statement on House Republicans’ plan to gut the Office of Congressional Ethics
“Outrageous — there is just no other word to describe gutting the Office of Congressional Ethics (OCE), which is the very first act of the new Republican House. This is not a good way to start — a closed meeting of one Party, held at night, in the basement of the US Capitol, for the purpose of ending transparency in the ethics process.”
President-Elect Trump’s Naming of Stephen Bannon as Chief Strategist
"If President-elect Trump meant it when he said he wanted to bring the country together and represent all of us, he will withdraw his offer to Stephen Bannon. The views that Bannon has embraced have no place in the White House or anywhere in our country."
