Maxine Waters (D-CA) and her Chief of Staff and grandson Mikael Moore, attends a rare open meeting of the committee in the Longworth House Office Building on Capitol Hill September 21, 2012 in Washington, DC. The long-running investigation found that Waters did not commit an ethics violaiton when her office in late 2008 set up a meeting with top Treasury Department officials on behalf of a bank Williams owned stock in, at a time when the bank faced possible collapse because of the financial crisis. However, Moore was issued a letter of reproval for three ethics violations for trying to help the bank. (Photo by Chip Somodevilla/Getty Images)
