WASHINGTON (AP) - The House Ethics Committee will consider an investigation of Republican congressman Markwayne Mullin of Oklahoma.

A spokeswoman for the congressman says Mullin is cooperating with the House Ethics Committee and believes he is in full compliance with all ethics rules.

Ethics Committee chairman Michael Conaway and ranking Democrat Linda Sanchez said Thursday they had received a referral about Mullin from the Office of Congressional Ethics.

The OCE is an outside organization that can refer cases to the House Ethics Committee. The subject of the potential investigation isn't being disclosed.

Conaway and Sanchez say that considering an investigation does not indicate any violation has occurred. They will announce any further action by March 24.

Hmmmm, I wonder what it could be? From turd farmer to Republican Congresman it's hard to tell the difference.

Our new guy, Mr. Mullin must be bothering somebody up there and making some people feel a little uncomfortable. Some body probably started something and now the Ethics committee must follow through and check on it since it’s their job. Markwayne, you will probably have to endure a few more attacks before it’s over Buddy. Hang in there, you know what they say, “if the devil isn’t bothering you then you better take a good look at yourself. He probably has got you right where he wants you.” Shake ‘em up!
