BRONX (WABC) -- An ethics panel is investigating whether New York City Councilman Andy King should be punished for showing a female staffer too much attention.

According to the panel, King, who represents sections of the Bronx, asked the woman to smile more and invited her to a winter ball where allegedly said he hoped she would wear a beautiful gown.

The committee did not say when the alleged misconduct occurred.

If King is penalized he could face fines, sanction or possibly be forced out of the city council.
