New evidence revealed in Waters ethics case

WASHINGTON The Democratic congresswoman is accused of steering federal bailout money to a bank in which her husband owned stock.

The email by Waters' chief of staff said Waters was closely watching the writing of bailout legislation that included a provision to help minority-owned banks.

But /*OneUnited*/ Bank, where Waters' husband held stock, wasn't mentioned.

A key question is whether Waters instructed her chief of staff to get help for OneUnited.

The trial has been postponed indefinitely.
