The House Ethics Committee officially exonerated Rep. Maxine Waters, California Democrat, in a 3-year-old conflict-of-interest case involving her work on behalf of minority-owned banks despite her husband's financial stake in one of them.
In a dispute that some are calling a modern-day updating of the biblical Parable of the Ungrateful Servant, a minority-owned bank that benefited from federal bailout funds is threatening to foreclose on one of the nation’s oldest black churches.

Rep. Maxine Waters on Friday defended herself against accusations of ethics misdeeds when she sought the Treasury Department's help for a bank in which her husband was invested, saying that she did nothing wrong.
