Former International Monetary Fund chief Dominique Strauss-Kahn and a hotel maid settled her lawsuit Monday over sexual-assault allegations that sank his political career and spurred scrutiny of his dealings with women on two continents.
House Republicans said Tuesday they will press for more answers after an inspector general’s report charged that the top lawyer for the National Labor Relations Board had an apparent financial conflict of interest in a case involving Wal-Mart.
The top lawyer at the National Labor Relations Board violated federal ethics rules by helping investigate a case involving Wal-Mart Stores Inc., despite holding a financial interest in the company, the board's inspector general has found.
His lawyer, William Taylor III, told the inspector general: "We believe that your report reaches the wrong conclusion."
Mr. Taylor said the report greatly overstates Mr. Solomon's role in a 10-minute meeting and that he was simply outlining the board's options.
