The Stephanopoulos Affair

February 1993
National Review;2/1/1993, Vol. 45 Issue 2, p16
The article reports that George Stephanopoulos, one of U.S. President Bill Clinton's chief aides, may be subject to felony charges under the Ethics in Government Act. This ethics law is applied to members of Congress and their senior staff as well as the executive. Stephanopoulos was executive floor assistant to House Majority Leader Richard Gephardt for most of 1991. The Bush administration, in 1991, proposed an amendment that would have exempted purely political communications from the law. A criminal investigation of Stephanopoulos are a necessity if the new Clinton administration is to start with the slightest integrity in such matters.
