A grand jury indicted Democratic Senate candidate Alvin Greene Friday, for showing pornography to a student at the University of South Carolina.
Greene is a political newcomer who took a lot of people by surprise after winning his state's primary. He is supposed to face Sen. Jim Demint, R-S.C., in the November elections. So far, Green has refused to talk about the accusations.
Meanwhile, Rep. Maxine Waters, D-Calif., is denying accusations of ethics violations.
"Neither my staff, nor I engaged in any improper behavior, and we did not influence anyone, and we did not gain any benefit," Waters said.
The congresswoman's colleagues are charging her with using her position to secure bailout money for a bank her husband has a stake in. That bank eventually received $12 million in bailout funds.
Waters insists she did nothing wrong. She is the second Democrat this month to face ethics violations. New York Congressman Charlie Rangel is being accused of 13 violations.
Dates for their public trials have not been announced.
