Mass. GOP Calls For Ethics Probe

The Massachusetts Republican Party is filing an ethics complaint against Governor Deval Patrick for a phone call that Patrick made in relation to a controversial mortgage lender.

Patrick called the global financial giant Citigroup to speak on behalf of the owners of Ameriquest Mortgage, a sub prime lender. Patrick once served on the board of Ameriquest.
He has since apologized for making the call and says it was a mistake.

The Republican Party's executive director says the call brings up serious ethical questions.
