HADDON HEIGHTS, N.J. (AP) — U.S. Rep. Rob Andrews will leave Congress in two weeks after 23 years in office.

The 56-year-old is leaving the Capitol on Feb. 18.

He intends to join a law firm with offices in Washington. He says the job just opened and he “had to make a decision this weekend.”

Andrews was first elected to Congress to represent a district outside Philadelphia in 1990.

A congressional ethics committee has been looking into Andrews’ campaign spending after reports that he was using campaign funds for trips to California, where his daughter had a fledgling singing and acting career.

His departure will end that inquiry.

The seat will be open until the general election in November.
