    What do you think he should get? Censure, reprimand, expulsion? The thing that pisses me off the most is that he rejects the conviction.

    I think he should lose his seat for sure. But that ain't gonna happen.

    I agree. I think it will probably end up as a censure.

    Yep, it's official. Censure. Guilty of 11 out of 13, no remorse, and he keeps his seat. Congress is such an exclusive club. :dis:

    The guy is 80. Nature is going to deal with Rangel swiftly.

    Who gives a crap how old he is? He should be punished for his criminal activities. Edwin Edwards is over 80.. why isn't he out? Why did they even put him in?

    Even at 80 Chuck could pull a Strom and live for another 20 years or so. That's plenty of time for more laws to be broken. I'd rather see him in the hole than on the hill.

    That said, I figured he'd get off with nothing. To quote the talking heads... "Same as it ever was.."

    what's really sad is that no one is shocked.

    I think he should be shot at dawn.
