Congressman Joe Wilson’s office released a statement today saying the House Committee on Standards of Official Conduct announced it is dismissing the issue before it regarding Congressman Joe Wilson.
Wilson released the following statement following the Committee’s dismissal:
I appreciate members of the Committee on Standards for thoroughly examining the matter brought before them. There was never any doubt in my mind that this matter would be dismissed.
Democrat Committee Chair Zoe Lofgren (CA-16) confirmed my belief by stating, ‘The evidence presently before the Committee does not support a determination that you violated any law, rule, regulation, or other applicable standard of conduct.’ I have maintained throughout this process that I did not violate any rules, regulations, or laws.”
