WASHINGTON (AP) - The Associated Press reports that Representative Charles Rangel, New York, will soon
learn his punishment after being found guilty of ethics violations.
Officials say the oversight committee could have the House vote to censure Rangel for fundraising and financial misdeeds that violated congressional rules. Other possibilities include a reprimand, a fine or a report describing his conduct.
After an investigation that began in the summer of 1998, Rangel was convicted Tuesday by a jury of his House peers on 11 of 13 charges of rules violations.
