    Rangel has not been exonerated from criminal prosecution, and it may still occur. While the vote today was proper and very well deserved, it is still a black eye on Congress in at least two ways:

    1) Rangle is still a sitting member, recently reelected by a district that would elect the devil if he were black; and
    2) The Democrats who have controlled Congress took too long to get to this day.

    Our politicians still think they are so special. We have ourselves to blame for their continuing arrogance. Hopefully that is changing, but we are not yet there by any stretch.

    House Roll Call: Vote to censure NY's Rangel

    House Roll Call: Vote to censure NY's Rangel
    The Associated Press
    Thursday, December 2, 2010; 7:45 PM

    -- The 333-79 roll call Thursday by which the House voted to censure Rep. Charles Rangel of New York for ethics and fundraising violations.

    A "yes" vote is a vote in favor of censure.

    Voting yes were 170 Democrats and 163 Republicans.

    Voting no were 77 Democrats and 2 Republicans.
    "In my heart, I truly feel good," he said. "I know in my heart that I'm not going to be judged by this Congress, that I'm going to be judged by my life, my activities, my contributions to society, and I apologize for the awkward position that some of you are in."
    Charles Rangel Censured for House Ethics Violations - ABC News
    It's time there is an IRS investigation, and perhaps a criminal investigation so the record is clear, and so Charlie can have someone else Judge him and have him then make a change of heart, or serve the punishment an ordinary citizen would receive.

    He should have his ass tossed out of Congress, for Censure is meaningless.

    And to think, this was the chairman of the Ways & Means committee. The laws too complex for him to understand??? Then this is the perfect opportunity to use Rangel as an example of how burdensome the tax code is and fight for simplicity.

    Just think of the ObamaKare mess as well... it can be attached to the complexity argument, as well as using the clips from Reid's debate with Angle where he keeps telling people they should come to his office to sort out their affairs.

    Is it 2012 yet?

    It's time that the IRS be dismissed. We don't need them, and the tax should be burned.

    Quite frankly I am NOT comfortable with the way this CORRUPTED and crooked politician Rangel being spanked lightly instead of at least kicked him out of office. We don't need this kind of people in the House.
