by Gretchen Parsons

 WASHINGTON, D.C.- The longest serving Republican in the House, U.S. Representative Don Young, was publicly rebuked by the House Ethics Committee.

The 81-year-old Republican was ordered to pay a $60,000 fine, the amount of money in which he accepted in the form of inappropriate gifts and trips.

The oversights that were found by the committee stemmed from the years 2001-2013.
