Freshman Rep. Trey Radel (R-Fla.), who last month announced he was “profoundly sorry” for his “extremely irresponsible choice,” will face an investigation by the House Ethics Committee regarding his misdemeanor charge of cocaine possession. Radel pleaded guilty to the charge.

Fox News’ Chad Pergram has more.

As Hot Air’s Mary Katharine Ham noted last month, Radel is a co-sponsor of a bill to give judges discretion on mandatory minimums.
