The name of the hospital wasn’t disclosed, the Associated Press reports. Andy Juniewicz, a campaign spokesman, said Mr. Kucinich was improving Tuesday night and said no medical update was available yesterday morning.
Rep. George Miller, California Democrat and chairman of the Committee on Education and Labor, sent a letter to the Government Accountability Office yesterday asking it to investigate whether nonprofit student lenders are providing their top executives with a lavish lifestyle and thus abusing their tax-exempt status.
“Nonprofit lenders exist to help students,” he said. “When they stray from that mission, they shouldn’t enjoy any special benefits.”
State and federal investigators, including those from Mr. Miller’s committee, have uncovered kickback schemes, conflicts of interest and expensive perks between some lenders and college officials nationwide. The scandal prompted the House to approve legislation outlawing such behavior.
