Rangel supporters urge ‘no’ vote on censure
NEW YORK | Rep. Charles B. Rangel’s supporters in New York’s Harlem want members of Congress to stand by him.
A group of local leaders says Mr. Rangel has worked hard in his decades-long career to support his community. They’re urging other members of the House of Representatives to vote no on a recommendation to censure him.
The Democratic congressman was convicted in an ethics trial by a panel of lawmakers on 11 counts of ethical wrongdoing, including his use of House letterheads and staff to solicit money for a college center named after him. A number of the donors had business before the House Ways and Means Committee while Mr. Rangel served as chairman.
The full House is expected to vote after the Thanksgiving break.
