“Rep. Rick Renzi (R-Ariz.) failed to disclose a $200,000 payment he received from a business partner in 2005 in apparent violation of House ethics rules. Prosecutors could use the omission as evidence that Renzi intended to conceal a transaction he knew to be controversial or even improper.” The fact that Renzi failed to report the payment fuels suspicions that the business partner, James Sandlin, “gave Renzi an illegal gift in exchange for action Renzi took to help Sandlin sell a $4 million parcel of land.”
