It would only be fair that he goes out the same way
Charlie didn't want to testify at a hearing because many of these charges are crimes and the testimony could come back and bite him in the arse

Great job of cleaning up The Congress, or at least the House.
How long has this been going on?
How about when she wanted to put Alcee Hastings, a former Federal
judge removed by Congress for taking payoffs, in charge of the
House Intelligence (yes, an oxymoron when paired w/
Probably had some thing to do with the freak show of William Jefferson, (D) LA, too.
For me the ONLY appropriate punishment is expulsion from the House.
Censure means absolutely nothing.
