The House just voted to censure New York Democrat Rep. Charles Rangel for financial and fundraising misconduct.
The vote was 333-79. It was only the 23rd time that the House has invoked its most serious punishment short of expulsion. The solemn procedure will force Rangel to appear at the front of the chamber while
Speaker Nancy Pelosi reads the censure resolution.
Democrats Debbie Wasserman Schultz, Kathy Castor and Ron Klein voted for censure. Orlando Democrat Alan Grayson and Jacksonville Democrat Corrine Brown voted against it. Most Florida Republicans voted for it; three missed the vote, as did Democrats Kendrick Meek and Alcee Hastings.
