Our story examined U.S. Rep. Ed Whitfield's ethical missteps and cozy ties and financial partnerships with his lobbyist wife and another powerful lobbyist. In 2002, Whitfield, his wife and a nationally-known lobbyist jointly purchased property in the upscale Greenbrier resort in West Virginia. With a few exceptions, House ethics rules prohibit gifts to members from anyone, including lobbyists. But in West Virginia, Duggan's and Whitfield's fortunes were linked in a six-figure land deal, a financial partnership that lasted more than a decade.
