Citizens for Responsibility and Ethics in Washington (CREW) Executive Director Noah Bookbinder released the following statement on the conviction of Rep. Chaka Fattah (D-PA):

“The conviction of Rep. Fattah highlights another sad example of the kind of ethical failure we should never see from Congress.  Fattah used his office for his own personal gain, as well as that of his  friends and family.  He should resign from Congress immediately.”
