Ethics Panel Recommended Reprimand for Rangel

Friday, 30 Jul 2010 01:17 PM

A House investigator says the panel handling Rep. Charlie Rangel's ethics case has recommended a reprimand by the full House — but that decision could be months away.

Rep. Gene Green, who's on the subcommittee that investigated the New York Democrat, says that's the recommended penalty for the 20-term New York Democrat. Rangel is facing 13 charges of wrongdoing.

Green, D-Texas, also said Friday that the secret votes on some of those charges haven't been unanimous.

Among the harsher penalties that could have been recommended are censure, a fine or even expulsion from the House.

The case now goes to another bipartisan panel of Rangel's peers. They will try the 80-year-old lawmaker in public this fall if there is no settlement.
