Time magazine covers AZ congressman

The House Ethics Committee has begun an investigation into the conduct of three-term CD 1 Rep. Rick Renzi, 49, recently indicted on conspiracy, extortion and other charges.

Renzi could face censure or, in the worst case, expulsion, which would require a two-thirds vote of his congressional colleagues.

Renzi, who announced last year that he would not seek re-election, has denied wrongdoing. He has resisted suggestions that he resign.
