The House Ethics Adjudicatory Subcommittee found Rep. Charlie Rangel, D-New York guilty Monday on 11 counts of breaking House rules.  The last count was not a full consensus.  The third count was a 4 to 4 vote.

The Subcommittee has recessed and will resume session this afternoon.


It is unknown at this time how long the Committee will take in its closed executive session to deliberate on the 13 charges against Rep. Rangel, but they will continue to deliberate today. When the Committee reaches their decision regarding Rangel’s guilt on each charge, they will make a public announcement and send a report on their findings to the full Ethics Committee, which would then hold a public sanctions hearing. If a violation is found, the Ethics Committee would vote on disciplinary measures and send a final report to the full House to take action.

Maxine Waters is next.  Bring it on.  Waters hearing will begin the week of November 29, 2010.  Both of these thugs are the reason we need term limits.
