Congressman Randy Neugebauer's testy exchange with a park ranger at the National World War II Memorial continues to cause him heartburn. The fallout from Wednesday's incident now includes an ethics complaint filed against him by watchdog group Citizens for Responsibility and Ethics in Washington, or CREW.

The exchange was caught on camera and within hours turned up on cable newscasts and news websites, often with scathing commentary.

On Friday, watchdog group Citizens for Responsibility and Ethics in Washington, or CREW, filed a request for an investigation into Neugebauer's conduct during that exchange.

CREW claims in the request that Neugebauer may have violated a House rule requiring members to act "at all times in a manner that reflects credibility on the House."

The congressman said his comments were not aimed at the park ranger, but at the Obama administration's directive to restrict access to the outdoor memorial during the government shutdown.

"The congressman said his comments were not aimed at the park ranger, but at the Obama administration's directive to restrict access to the outdoor memorial during the government shutdown." My Dad always told me - Fool me once shame on you - fool me twice shame on me. Sir, you can't BS your way out of this one. Shame on YOU.
