Indy Star: D.C. Watchdog Group Files Ethics Complaint Against Lugar

On March 29, 2012, the Indianapolis Star reported:

A Washington-based watchdog group, Citizens for Responsibility and Ethics in Washington, is asking the Senate Select Committee on Ethics to investigate Sen. Richard Lugar’s use of some taxpayer dollars to pay for hotel rooms.

Lugar recently said he will repay $4,500, from expenses that date back to 1991, for some Indianapolis hotel stays that had been mistakenly paid for out of his Senate office funds. Senate rules bar reimbursement for hotel stays in a legislators home area during Senate adjournment.
