According to Citizens for Responsibility and Ethics in Washington, Jean Schmidt is one of 14 Democrats and Republicans in congress “whose actions violated the law or who otherwise engaged in serious misconduct.”
CREW’s latest report identified Schmidt as the only Ohioan worthy of this high honor:
Rep. Schmidt accepted hundreds of thousands of dollars in free legal services from lawyers hired by an interest group that appreciated her legislative assistance.
The ethically challenged congresswoman also failed to report the free legal services as gifts in her disclosure forms.
Congratulations, Jean! Keep up the good work.
