The House on Thursday formally censured Rep. Charlie Rangel for financial misconduct despite pleas from the New York Democratic lawmaker and some of his colleagues for a less punishing reprimand.
The House voted to censure Rangel 333-79.
Rangel, who became the 23rd House member to be censured, appeared at the front of the chamber while Speaker Nancy Pelosi read the resolution.

Censured. The sunovabeech should be in jail.
How about restitution, back taxes, interest and penalties?
“while Speaker Nancy Pelosi read the resolution.”
Did she choke on it while saying it?
Censured, a big whoop-how about a firing squad?
He should be a human hand puppet for Bubba.
Where can I buy the DVD?
Oh! Man! That’s very disrespectful! Cab Calloway was just about the coolest cat to ever hit this rock!
You or I would be under the flippin' jail for less than his CRIMES.
And they all get to pretend that this was a serious punishment.
Time for that Twenty-eighth Amendment.
Disgusting that he was applauded after his bullshit speech.
rancid is saying: “hahahahahaha snicker, snort snort oh boy... this really hurts..... hahahahahaha...... oh stop, your killing me , hahahahah.....”
And Wesley Snipes goes to jail.
This is just another slap in the faces of all of us who try to do right.
There it is, that’s how corrupt and dysfunctional the entire Congress is. A huge rip-off tax cheat who was allowed to write tax laws and we’re supposed to accept a censure? Really, hey guess what? Now I don’t feel like I should have to pay MY taxes.
Meaningless gesture; the people of Harlem are most pleased with their “lawmaker,” uh, lawbreaker.
Interesting that the 79 are not identified. Presumably the 41 members of the CBC and 38 non-blacks. MSM won’t identify the racist vote on this.

Yeah, I threw up a little as I typed that. Thanks ColdOne.
