Committee counsel R. Black Chisam, during a nearly five-hour hearing to determine a punishment, said he thought a censure was the most appropriate sanction,and the ten members of the panel - five Democrats and five Republicans - agreed after deliberating in a closed-door session for just three hours.
Mr. Chisam said he recommended the censure over a reprimand in part because of Mr. Rangel's prominence and the influence he wielded as chairman of one of the House's most powerful committees.
