Rep. Connie Mack all clear in mailer violation, official says

The Republican head of the House Franking Commission says "no further action" will be taken against U.S. Rep. Connie Mack, R-Fort Myers, whose mailer this week violated House rules because it was widely distributed beyond his district.

A mailing list vendor took the blame and wrote the U.S. Treasury a nearly $18,000 check.

"This is an unfortunate mistake that does occur from time to time and the proper steps to reimburse the cost of the error have since been followed accordingly," wrote Rep. Aaron Schock, R-Ill.
