House quietly changes ethics rules

January 13, 2015, The Hill

Covington's Rob Kelner is quoted in this article on the House of Representatives approving changes to ethics rules:

"Robert Kelner, the chair of Covington & Burling’s election and political law practice group, said the rules could give defense attorneys new arguments when clients face allegations of misconduct." 

“There are a wide range of due process protections guaranteed by the Constitution,” Kelner said. “Anytime OCE or the Ethics Committee act in contravention of one of those guarantees, defense lawyers will cite the new House rules to demand fair treatment for their clients.”
