Cutting Room Floor: Rangel Censured

Tom Williams/Roll Call

Rep. Charlie Rangel (D-N.Y.) conducts a news conference after he was censured Thursday, the first time in 30 years a House Member has received the punishment on the floor. More than 100 Members voted to reduce the punishment to a reprimand, but the motion failed. Rangel was found to have misused federal resources to solicit donations for a City College of New York center named in his honor, used a rent-stabilized apartment for his campaign office, failed to pay taxes on a villa in the Dominican Republic and filed inaccurate financial disclosure forms.
