The Berkley Ethics Investigation
The Berkley Ethics Investigation

Listen
AIR DATE: July 11, 2012

Congresswoman Shelley Berkley will face further scrutiny from the House Ethics Committee. The watchdog decided to formally investigate allegations that the Las Vegas congresswoman lobbied to influence the Administration's decisions about kidney medicine at UMC in ways that helped her husband's medical practice. She has also sponsored legislation that improves federal support for kidney services. So will this hurt Berkley's campaign for Nevada's US Senate seat? Is there more to be discovered? Or did the whole story come out in the original report from the New York Times?

COMMENTS:
As reported yesterday in the LV SUN "In 2008, Berkley joined with the rest of the Nevada delegation to lobby to keep the kidney transplant center open at University Medical Center." Were Porter, and Heller part of a well planned conspiracy to line the pockets of Dr. Larry Lehrner and later discredit Shelley Berkley. How very clever! The need for kidney support services be damned...now those devious Republicans can skewer one of the best, most outspoken advocates we Nevadans have had in congress for a very long time.
