Ami Bera Endorses Democrat Under Congressional Investigation

Yesterday, California Democrat Ami Bera endorsed Mike Honda’s re-election campaign. This endorsement comes despite the fact that Honda is currently under investigation by the House Ethics Committee for allegedly using government resources for campaign use.

Bera’s endorsement comes as Honda faces a tough re-election. He has already been outraised by his opponent, who has “more than twice as much cash banked for the race.”

Honda and Bera are very close, and even sang a duet together in May 2014.

What does it say about Bera’s trustworthiness that he would endorse a congressman under such a serious ethics investigation?
