BREAKING – RANGEL ETHICS CASE. House Ethics convicted Rep. Charles B. Rangel of 11 of the 13 ethics violations. Right now the House Democratic Caucus is meeting in the basement of the U.S. Capitol and Rep. Rangel is in that meeting. Though Rangel says he was not informed by Ethics there of course is the possibility his staff was unable to inform him or delayed in informing him and Ethics did contact his office. Rangel made no direct comment on the Ethics ruling. This was about 35 minutes ago.
