(Washington, DC) — Outgoing Congresswoman Shelley Berkley violated conflict-of-interest rules by using her office to help her husband’s medical practice. But the House Ethics Committee ruled it did not rise to the level of corruption, and recommended no further action.

The report ends a controversy that may have led to Berkley’s defeat in last month’s U.S. Senate race.

The panel looked into whether Berkley helped keep University Medical Center’s kidney transplant center open, while her husband’s firm had a contract for kidney services at the hospital.
