Robert Walker Discusses Potential Ethics Violations of Rep. Grayson

The Wall Street Journal
April 6, 2016

Robert L. Walker, of counsel in Wiley Rein’s Election Law & Government Ethics Practice, was quoted in an article published yesterday in The Wall Street Journal about a congressional investigations report on Rep. Alan Grayson that detailed possible ethics rules violations.

According to the article, documents recently made public show that Rep. Grayson allegedly profited from business dealings while he was in office, which he also failed to disclose. Detailed in the report is an allegation that Mr. Grayson operated a hedge fund which he described as a friends-and-family fund.

Mr. Walker said that Congressional ethics rules may prohibit such business and legal relationships to “prevent situations where members might receive payments for professional services that are not really provided.”
