An anonymous complaint filed earlier this year with the Committee on Standards of Official Conduct against U.S. Congressman Sam Graves has been dismissed.

The complaint was related to Graves’ failure to disclose the financial connection between his wife, Lesley Graves, an investor in two renewable fuels cooperatives in Missouri, and family friend Brooks Hurst, involved in the two cooperatives, at a House Small Business Committee hearing in March.

According to a press released issued by his office, Graves issued the following statement:

“I want to thank the Committee on Standards of Official Conduct for voting unanimously to dismiss the matter involving me referred to it by the Board of the Office of Congressional Ethics,” he wrote.

“I appreciate the Committee’s work and its prompt dismissal of this matter.”
