U.S. Rep. Charles Rangel (D-N.Y.) has filed a lawsuit to overturn his censure.
Censured U.S. Rep. Charles Rangel returned to his home turf in the city’s Harlem neighborhood on Saturday, saying he still loves Congress.
The House voted to censure Charlie Rangel for ethical violations. Censure is the second most serious punishment Congress can hand out — one step short of expulsion.
The House ethics committee voted 9-1 on Nov. 18 to recommend a censure of the 80-year-old Democrat from Harlem.
