With a vote of 333-79, twenty-term Congressman Charlie Rangel (D-NY) was officially “censured” by the House of Representatives on 11 of 13 ethics violations.  The act essentially amounts to an embarrassment since only four others were censured by the House over the last century, two of them pedos.

Think about this though:  if you were charged with (and likely guilty of) these kinds of things would you merely receive a strongly worded condemnation (gasp!) voted on by your peers (oh no!) and read to you aloud (my dear!), or would you probably spend lots of time in jail?

Hmm… seems like that ol’ ruling class attitude still lives on.
