House Ethics Committee recommends censure.
The hearing postponed until after the mid-term elections may have had sometime to do with his re-election. Then again may not have made a difference.
4% of black voters voted for the white guy (McCain)
43% of white voters voted for the black guy (Obama)
96% of black voters voted for Obama and you expect people to think that none of that was due to race? really....
like it or not, black voters, in general, are more likely to vote for a black candidate over a white candidate regardless of policy or party. If stating this statistical truth makes me a racist....then so be it.

The best argument against democracy is a five-minute conversation with the average voter.
An appeaser is one who feeds a crocodile, hoping it will eat him last.
Slight point here, can you tell us what happens when a black man declares him or her self a conservative in a predominately black district? What names they are called?
I remember Michael Steele's visit to Howard University in Maryland when I lived there. They threw Oreo's at him.
after referencing his war record and 50 years of congressional "service," rangel walked out of his hearing tuesday, claiming he hadn't been given enough time to prepare a defense and he couldn't afford his million dollar lawyers
today he pleads, "i don't know how much longer i have to live"
Tearful Charlie Rangel faces censure - John Bresnahan and Martin Kady II - POLITICO.com
charlie, personally, is an extremely gracious, kindly, grandfatherly and much loved 40 year veteran, almost everyone who knows him speaks very highly of his personal relations
but 17 years of tax avoidance, millions of dollars never disclosed, donations solicited under WAYS AND MEANS letterhead, what appears to be HUSH MONEY paid to committee members...
he should be prosecuted civilly
next---maxine waters, with REPUBLICANS chairing the committee
I asked this question in an other thread and didn't get an answer. Charlie was convicted on 11 counts of violating house rules by the house ethics committee. Question: Do any of the charges he was convicted of violate the law? And if so can he be tried in a court of law?
Should he face a civil trial? Personally I kinda like the guy and I would suggest he retire at this point.
