Panel Recommends Reprimand For Rangel

The House Ethics subcommittee that investigated allegations against Rep. Charles Rangel, D-N.Y., has recommended that he be reprimanded rather than censured or expelled from Congress.

Rep. Gene Green, D-Tex., who chaired that subcommittee, said today his panel had suggested the lesser punishment following its 21-month probe. However, that recommendation is not binding for a separate ethics panel that will try the Harlem Democrat in September unless Rangel reaches a deal to avert the proceeding.

 

The ethics subcommittee announced Thursday 13 counts of alleged House ethics violations against the 80-year-old former Ways and Means chairman. The full House will ultimately have to vote on any recommendation of punishment coming from the Ethics subcommittee that tries the case.

Green also said there may have been a lot of rumors over the last two weeks about a settlement between Rangel and staffers on the committee, but he added that such talks never reached the committee level.
