No Charges Filed as Greene Probe Closes

Nation IN BRIEF : WASHINGTON, D.C.

November 01, 1996|From Times Staff and Wire Reports

The Justice Department closed its criminal investigation of Rep. Enid Greene's personal and campaign finances without bringing any charges against her. But her 1992 and 1994 campaign committees remain under investigation by the Federal Election Commission, which has the power to seek civil fines if it finds any campaign-finance violations. Joseph Waldholtz, former husband of the Utah Republican congresswoman, is in jail awaiting sentencing Nov. 7 for bank, election and tax fraud. Greene, who did not seek reelection, had blamed her financial troubles on deceptions perpetrated on her and others by Waldholtz. U.S. Atty. Eric H. Holder Jr.'s investigation focused on allegations about her campaigns for Congress in 1992 and 1994 and her personal and family finances, including her income tax returns.
