Ethics panel approves subpoenas in new investigation of House sex scandal

The House of Representatives' Ethics Committee approved four dozen subpoenas for documents and testimony Thursday, launching an investigation of a congressional page sex scandal that has imperiled Republican prospects in the Nov. 7 month's elections.
The committee's chairman, Rep. Doc Hastings, said a newly formed subcommittee's investigation "will go wherever our evidence leads us."
Asked if embattled lead of the House, Speaker Dennis Hastert, was among those subpoenaed, Hastings would not comment.
"We are looking at weeks, not months," said the committee's senior Democrat, Rep. Howard Berman.
