NPC Ethics Committee is Mum on Suspended Member

Bloomberg’s John Hughes, who heads up the National Press Club’s Ethics Committee, got back to FishbowlDC today on our inquiry regarding suspended club member, blogger and comm director Sam Husseini. Hughes wouldn’t discuss yesterday’s scheduled committee meeting to discuss Husseini. NPC Executive Director William McCarren, who did not return calls yesterday, was set to attend the meeting. Husseini refused to show up since officials refused to let him record it. Just like the House Ethics Committee, members of NPC’s Ethics Committee don’t talk.

Hughes: “Sorry, we have a strict policy against discussing the specifics of matters pending before the ethics committee. The Press Club did issue a broader statement on Friday — I’d refer you to that. Thanks!”
