October 8, 2010 12:00:00 AM PDT
The House Ethics Committee has scheduled a Nov. 29 date to hear ethics violation charges against Rep. Maxine Waters (D-Los Angeles). The Democratic congresswoman is accused of improperly seeking federal assistance for One United Bank, which has ties to her husband.

Three months later, the bank received $12 million from the $700 billion in federal bailout funds.

Waters, who denied any wrong-doing, said she is eager to have the opportunity to clear her name.
