Baldacci gets pass on ethics inquiry

Four serving US senators and four serving US representatives have been cited in an ethics complaint alleging violations of Congressional gift-receiving rules for allegedly accepting discounts on lodging in DC at a house owned by the mysterious religious group "the Family."

Maine governor John Baldacci, who lived in that house when he served in Congress, was not mentioned in the complaint. He is not alone: several other prominent politicians who lived there in the past were also not mentioned.
