Or maybe the better question would be: What should happen to Charlie Rangel?

Earlier today Rangel was found guilty on 11 violations of House rules. (Only 11?) Some of those include–but are not limited to–the following: used House stationary and staff to solicit money for a school of public policy in his name at the City College of New York, solicited donors for the center with interests before the Ways and Means Committee, using an apartment in Harlem zoned for residential use as his campaign office, failing to report more than $600,000 on his financial disclosure report, and failing to pay taxes on rental income from a villa he owns in the Dominican Republic.

My answer to the original question? Nothing. Oh well, maybe a slap on the wrist. He should be given the boot. If he had any integrity at all he would resign. However, I’m not holding my breath.
