U.S. Rep. Alcee Hastings says he's married; ethics panel clears him

U.S. Rep. Alcee Hastings is cleared in an investigation of his relationship with a longtime staffer.

A U.S. House Ethics Committee investigation into U.S. Rep. Alcee Hastings’ relationship with a member of his staff was closed last month, ending another chapter of ethical questions in a long career filled with them.

The House Ethics Committee, chaired by a Palm Beach County colleague, said it closed the investigation after learning that the longtime congressman had married his aide in January 2019.

The committee did not name the staff member but The Palm Beach Post and other media outlets have reported that Hastings has been in a long relationship with Patricia Williams, a former attorney who was disbarred for mishandling the money of her clients.

The closure of the House Ethics probe was first reported by Roll Call and Politico.
