A local congressman is in hot water again. Congressman Tom Reed is facing an ethics complaint relating to his law firm.

Reed represents parts of Ontario County, Ithaca and most of the Southern Tier.

According to the Buffalo News, Reed’s law firm in Corning is still run under his name. That’s a violation of congressional ethics rules, which state law firms cannot bear the name of any politician while that person is in office. At this time, no official ethics investigation has been opening. 

This is the second time Reed has been in trouble recently. He made headlines last year because of more than three dozen late tax payments.
