Weldon denies the report from yesterday.

"There is no investigation," said the congressman’s spokesman, John Tomaszewski. "There is no formal investigation and there is no inquiry. There’s nothing. This is nonsense, ludicrous."

Tomaszewski said neither Weldon nor anyone in his office has been contacted by the Justice Department.

The sources of the story said the FBI obtained evidence over the last few months "suggesting that the congressman may have broken the law" by assisting Karen Weldon in obtaining overseas contracts. One source, described only as a law enforcement official, said Weldon hadn’t yet been told of the inquiry.

Is he really being investigated? I guess more shall be revealed...
