Stockman Investigated: U.S. Representative Steve Stockman is under investigation by the House Ethics Committee for possible campaign finance violations. Stockman represents Congressional District 36, which includes Liberty and Chambers counties. The investigation is related to donations made by campaign workers and falsely reported as coming from their relatives. In a written statement, Rep. Stockman acknowledged the investigation, saying it was a reporting error made by a campaign volunteer who has since been removed. Rep. Stockman claims he corrected the error less than a week after he became aware of it.
