House Ethics Committee investigating Rep. Roskam

Posted: Updated:
CHICAGO (FOX 32 News) -

U.S. Rep. Peter Roskam is under investigation by the House Ethics Committee.

The committee says it received a report from the Office of Congressional Ethics, an independent investigative body, and has decided to extend its investigation of Roskam. The committee says it will announce its course of action on Roskam in September and says extending an investigation does not indicate that a violation has occurred.

The committee did not indicate what the OCE report included or what was investigated.

The committee also announced Friday they are investigating three other members of Congress including congresswoman Michele Bachmann of Minnesota who ran for president.

There is no indication that any of the investigations are linked.

The Associated Press contributed to this report.
