Despite an impassioned, tearful apology and a plea for leniency, Rep. Charles B. Rangel on Thursday became the first House member in nearly three decades to be recommended for censure.
The House ethics committee voted 9 to 1 in favor of censuring Rangel
(D-N.Y.), who was found guilty this week of 11 violations of House
rules, including improperly using his office to raise money and failing
to pay taxes.
