Regular readers are familiar with Democrat deadbeat Rep. Laura Richardson. (See here for all previous posts.) She’s the Democrat congresswoman who defaulted six times on her home loans and has left a trail of unpaid bills in her wake.

Well, finally, finally, her Sacramento foreclosure scandal is now the subject of a House ethics probe. Via the LA Times:

U.S. Rep. Laura Richardson’s rundown Sacramento house, which became the scourge of the neighborhood and a sore point with an investor who thought he had bought it out of foreclosure, has drawn the interest of a House ethics panel.

The Office of Congressional Ethics contacted real estate investor James York, who bought Richardson’s house at a foreclosure auction last year, only to have Washington Mutual take it back after he had recorded the deed and return the house to the congresswoman.

The office also has interviewed at least two of the Long Beach Democrat’s Sacramento neighbors, asking about their efforts — and their expenses — to tidy up the front- and backyards of Richardson’s two-story house. The city declared the house a public nuisance on one occasion and “blighted” on another

Most ethical House ever, right, Speaker Pelosi?
