Congresswoman Susan Brooks (R-5th) has been named to a special House committee investigating the 2012 attack on the U.S. consulate in Benghazi, Libya.

Brooks will be one of seven Republicans reviewing the attack which killed the U.S. ambassador to Libya and three other Americans, and whether the Obama Administration gave an honest account of what happened. She says there are still unanswered questions about whether the consulate had requested additional security, and if so, how the State Department dealt with the request.

Congressman Dan Burton will not run for reelection in the 5th Congressional District.  He made his announcement on the floor of the Indiana House Tuesday. 

 

Burton has served in Congress since 1983, but earlier in his career he held seats in both the state House and Senate.  He says he wanted to announce his decision not to run again at the place where his political career began.

Looking back at his career, Burton says he’s been proud of his work as a legislator.
