Diana DeGette on Rangel – He’s still a great guy!

Congresswoman Diana DeGette, Co-CD1, issued the following statement Friday, regarding the U.S. House of Representatives Ethics Committee resolution of censure of Representative Charles Rangel:

“I have the utmost respect for the sacrifices and contributions Representative Charles Rangel has made to our country through his military and public service. I have always admired his fearless fight for those who don't always have an advocate in the corridors of power. However, a thorough investigation by the bipartisan House Ethics Committee found he abused the rights and privileges bestowed upon him as a Member of the U.S. House of Representatives. We must always strive for the highest standards to protect the integrity of this institution for the American people who place their trust in us.”
