Censure?? What a joke. Get him out of there so he won't resume his old tricks. He should be in front of a real jury and we would see a different outcome.

another insult to the american people.......

rangel should not be allowed in any form of federal government......much less as a representive of the people.

this is nothing more than consenting to corruption and unethical actions in the House of Representives.

The House leadership once again refuses to clean up their own.

The american people have every human right to resist and rebel against this government.

If anyone really believes that rangel is the only crooked, cheating, lying, politician in office at this time, then I know they are waiting to see Santa clause come down their chimney! I doubt of a single one of them could face an investigation similar to rangels and come out clean! You can bet on it!

The issue is that 80% of his Harlem constituents voted for him in November.

That speaks volumes that these people see nothing wrong with electing a crook like Rangel. When you dumb down the electorate and let voters to follow what celibriturds say you get people like Rangel and Obama in office.

Too bad that voters do not have to prove some competency to vote. Wait until the illegals get to vote everywhere.

So, does that make it ok? Just because they all do it??? I can't imagine there are many who didn't pay income tax on rental property for 17 years!! He's only sorry because he got caught -- just like Tiger, John Edwards, and on and on. I'm not saying other politicians aren't guilty of something, but this is a pretty big deal, at least in my humble opinion. If I didn't pay taxes on rental income for 17 years, they'd probably throw away the key!
