got caught...Charlie Rangel. RANGEL LOSES 'TRIAL', AWAITS SANCTION: Charlie Rangel moves into the punishment phase after he was found guilty Tuesday on 11 ethics charges stemming from his personal finances and use of official resources, POLITICO's John Bresnahan reports. "The ethics committee will meet Thursday to consider punishment for Rangel, and most House insiders expect a formal reprimand or censure — with almost no chance of expulsion. Rangel will be permitted to address the ethics committee and full House regarding his punishment. 'I think that he should resign. He has received every procedural accommodation,' [said] added Rep. Peter Roskam (R-Ill.). 'And the [ethics] committee has unambiguously decided against him.' ... Rangel himself remained defiant, saying he felt that his rights were violated because a special ethics panel convicted him despite the fact that he had no attorney and asked for more time to prepare for an ethics trial. 'How can anyone have confidence in the decision of the ethics subcommittee when I was deprived of due process rights, right to counsel and was not even in the room?' Rangel said in a statement. 'I can only hope that the full committee will treat me more fairly and take into account my entire 40 years of service to the Congress before making any decisions on sanctions.' ... An eight-member panel of the House ethics committee, after deliberating for roughly six hours, found that there was 'clear and convincing evidence' that Rangel had violated House ethics on 11 of the 13 charges he faced heading into a rare public ethics trial." http://politi.co/cAvFH2
