Rangel Violated House Rules

The House Ethics Committee found Ways and Means Committee Chairman Charles Rangel violated House rules when he accepted trips to the Caribbean. Rangel's jaunts are considered hidden financing by corporations, and were accepted in knowing violation of House rules. Four other trip-goers, who were members of the Congressional Black Caucus, were exonerated, according to a source. Rangel holds one of the most influential positions in Congress. The finding raises questions about whether he'll continue to keep his role as head of that committee.
