Group Wants Issa Investigated for Obama Video

Says congressman misused government funds to produce what amounts to attack ad against president


Watchdog group CREW has asked the Office of Congressional Ethics to investigate whether Rep. Darrell Issa (R-Calif.) violated rules by producing a video that attacks President Obama.

The video, entitled "Obama State Dinners: Spend Like He Says, Not Like He Does," compares Obama's denouncement of a lavish $840,000 General Services Administration conference in Las Vegas to two expensive State Department dinners that hosted leaders from India and Mexico and included a performance by the singer Beyonce.
