October 30, 2009|Times Wire Reports

House ethics investigators have been scrutinizing the activities of more than 30 lawmakers and several aides about issues including defense lobbying and corporate influence peddling, according to a confidential House Ethics Committee report from July.

The report found its way to an Internet site in a case of "cyber-hacking," according to the committee's chairwoman, Rep. Zoe Lofgren (D-San Jose). Lofgren said no inferences should be made about anyone whose name was mentioned.

The Washington Post reported the incident.
