WASHINGTON – The Democratic chairwoman and the Republican ranking member of the House of Representatives ethics committee have agreed to investigate Rep. Joe Wilson further for possible abuse of taxpayer-funded expense money during his travel abroad.

Emphasizing their bipartisan decision, Democratic Rep. Zoe Lofgren of California, the ethics panel’s chairwoman, and Rep. Jo Bonner of Alabama, its senior Republican, said they had “jointly decided to extend” the probe of Wilson.

Wilson, R-S.C., has denied any wrongdoing.
