    Rangel Censured by House for Ethics Violations

    The House on Thursday formally censured Rep. Charlie Rangel for financial misconduct despite pleas from the New York Democratic lawmaker and some of his colleagues for a less punishing reprimand.

    The House voted to censure Rangel 333-79. Rangel, who became the 23rd House member to be censured, appeared at the front of the chamber while Speaker Nancy Pelosi read the resolution.

    Rangel responded that he won't be judged by this Congress, "but I'm going to be judged by my life, my activities, my contributions to society and I just apologize for the awkward position that some of you are in."

    But had he been a Republican, the house dems would demand he be drawn, quartered, and the pieces roasted on a spit.
    Progressivism is a bottomless pit of absurdity.

    I'm not so sure - I mean from what I see none of his ethics violations qualify for criminal charges so . . . . but a republican would have been demonized by the press until he resigned in shame. They will not do this to Charlie. They like him. They wanna go to Candy Mountian with him.
    Stand up for what is right, even if you have to stand alone.

    How about failure to list $600,000 taxable income .The IRS will lock your ass up for that but then Good Old Charlie holds the IRS purse strings so they wouldn't do that to him !

    Did you miss the part about the expired statute of limitations?
