Washington, D.C. – Rep. Zoe Lofgren (D-CA) released the following statement announcing her departure from the House Committee on Ethics.
At the beginning of the 112th Congress, I agreed to temporarily serve as Ranking Member in order to expedite travel and advice paperwork for members and their staffs’. Pursuant to my agreement with the Democratic Leader, I tendered my resignation today upon the official announcement naming Rep. Linda Sanchez as Ranking Member. I wish Ranking Member Sanchez and her fellow committee members my best as they continue the committee’s important work.
