Ted Deutch Becomes Chairman of House Ethics Committee

First elected to Congress in a special election held in 2010, Deutch has been moving up the ranks on the Democratic side of the aisle, including leading his party on the Ethics Committee when the GOP controlled the chamber and being the top Democrat on the U.S. House Middle East and North Africa Subcommittee where he often worked with then U.S. Rep. Ileana Ros-Lehtinen, R-Fla., who chaired the subcommittee, on helping Israel and other key allies in the region.
