rangal 385 U.S. House May Censure Charles Rangel

The U.S. House may move today to censure New York Democrat Charles Rangel. 

It would be the first censure of a member of the House in nearly 30-years.  The ethics committee recommended censure after Rangel was found to have violated House rules on taxes, fundraising and misuse of rent-controlled apartments.  Short of expulsion, censure is the most serious punishment that can be imposed by the House.

To learn more, KXNT Morning News spoke to CBS News Political Consultant Dotty Lynch.
