House Censures Rangel 333-79

Rep. Charles Rangel, the Harlem Democrat, met his comeuppance today with a vote of censure of 333-79. It's still a slap on the wrist and Rangel still thinks he's done nothing wrong.

That mindset is joined by 77 Democrats and 2 Republicans, including Rep. Peter King, another New York Congressman who thought that Rangel lacked the mindset worthy of the sentence of censure.

How sweet. Let's just ignore the tax evasion and failure to pay taxes on income over a period of a decade. Rangel and those who voted against censure would like to ignore or excuse the unjust enrichment caused by the failure to pay taxes even though Rangel was the chairman of the Ways and Means Committee.
