    I pretty much disagree with Rangel as it pertains to just about every initiative and policy.

    The man made mistakes. So did I. The man got caught becuase he has an entire party watching his every move. I didnt get caught becuase no one gives a crap about me.

    The man deserved to be called out and yes, and he deserves to be applauded for his service.

    He did nothing horribly wrong. He made some mistakes.

    Time to move on.

    He does deserve to be applauded for his service. As he deserved to be punished for the screw ups...

    He got both.

    I'm ok with that. But he really should have taken the deal.

    I totally agree. His service is to be respected. It is disappointing that someone who once served his country so admirably forgot the importance of honor. But he is human and we all make mistakes.

    I am of the opinion that our Congressmen should be allowed to be human, and we should not expect them to be perfect.

    The point is...why was he censured?

    All others were for true corruption and seriously lewd behavior.

    Bear in mind, Rangel never hid from his returns the apartemnts nor did he hide from the returns his place in the tropics.

    He simply did not pay a total of 10K in taxes over 20 years.....a total of about 500 bucks a year.

    Think he truly did that for personal gain?
