Update on Rangel ethics issues on Caribbean trips

Several sources, including this one, report that the House Ethics Committee has found that Rep. Rangel violated House rules in connection with Caribbean trips.

The House Ethics Committee website doesn’t show anything about the matter as of the time of this post, but keep checking.

The Times report is here.

Politico reports that Rep. Rangel said he’s being admonished.

Rangel told POLITICO Thursday night that he was being “admonished” by the committee on the grounds that at least two members of his staff knew about the corporate funding for the trips – and that Rangel himself should have known.
