— U.S. Rep. Jerry Moran says he has met with House ethics investigators to discuss rent he pays at a home in Washington D.C.

The Kansas City Star reports that a spokesman for the Kansas Republican said Monday that Moran had answered all the investigators' questions about paying below-market rent at a "C Street" home.

The spokesman would not say when the meeting occurred.

Moran, who is currently running for the U.S. Senate, lives at the home owned by a Christian organization known as the Fellowship, or the Family. Several members of Congress, including Kansas Sen. Sam Brownback, have lived at the home.

Citizens for Responsibility and Ethics in Washington filed an ethics complaint in April alleging that Congressional members who pay $950 a month in rent are receiving an improper gift. The group sent also filed a complaint with the Senate Ethics Committee.

My 85 year old mother, born in Linn County, Kansas, says this is a book that should not be read alone in the dark. I've taken her advice and only read small sections in broad daylight with the lights burning....scary stuff.

Wait, I thought Jerry was Mr. Ethics! Well we should let the investigation be completed before we demonize him. I mean it's not like Jerry attacked Todd during an ethics investigation (that he was cleared of). Actually he did attack Todd for that and then continued to following Tiahrt being fully cleared.
