    Ethics Committee Recommends Censure of Rangel as Full House Vote Awaits - FoxNews.com

    The censuring of a lawmaker does not carry any particular limitation on powers or privileges afforded to a member of Congress. There are no specific rules governing what happens to a member who has been censured.
    In the past, however, the party conferences and caucuses have decided to discipline their own based on the decision to censure a member.

    Censure? You have got to be kidding me... Will there ever be justice?

    Btw can a mod change the title to "Ethics Committee Recommends Censure of Rangel as Full House Vote Awaits." That least "Read more: h" was not intended.

    Ethics Committee:
    "Rangel, you've been very naughty." *waggles finger*
    "Ok, carry on."

    I worry this will set a precedence. Isn't Maxine Waters coming up on ethics violations? Will she get half of a finger waggle?

    The TSA is strip searching three-year-olds from Demoines, because they might be terrorists. Charlie Rangel gets busted, evading hundreds of thousands of dollars in taxes and he's going to get nothing more than an ass chewing.

    I admit I borrowed this but I found it very cool.


    If Rangel were a Republican he would have been told not to let the door hit him in the ass on his way out of Congress, he'd be called a scumbag by every Liberal in sight, and referred to the justice department for prosecution.

    This it typical Liberal two faced approach to ethics, something Liberals are unfamiliar with.

    Censure is not punishment it's a free pass.

    I disagree with censure, but this is not usually, and republicans have to stop with the whining of being picked on. Republicans do just as well as democrats. They are not a picked on minority. Buck up guys, have some self respect for Pete's sake.


    AUSTAN GOOLSBEE: I think the world vests too much power, certainly in the president, probably in Washington in general for its influence on the economy, because most all of the economy has nothing to do with the government.
