Representative Rangel Convicted of 11 Ethics Violations
Written by Bwog Staff
NYTimes reports a House ethics panel has found Democratic Representative Charles Rangel guilty of 11 out of the 13 alleged ethics violations. “I am not being treated fairly,” the Morningside Heights and Harlem representative told the ethics committee yesterday before he walked out of his hearing. The committee ruled Rangel had violated House rules for improper fundraising and failing to disclose more than half a million dollars in assets. The Daily News reports the Congressman boycotted his own hearing and wasn’t even present for the final ruling. The full House committee will now debate the verdict.
