Rangel Broke Rules: What Will Pelosi do?

Representative Rangel has been found to have broken the rules of the house by the House Ethics Committee. What will Pelosi do now? Will she force Rangel to step down from the House Ways and Means committee Chairmanship? Will she give a public rebuke of the unethical representative?

The ethics panel found that Rangel knowingly accepted vacations to the Carribean paid for by corporations. This is clearly inappropriate and unethical behavior. Pelosi said she would have the most ethical Congress ever. Seems she should be censuring Rangel and forcing him to step down. The bottom line here is Rangel is unethical and should do the right thing and step down. He is due for a press conference soon. If Rangel doesn't resign or at least step down from the chairmanship of the House Ways and Means committee, then Pelosi should do the right thing and remove him. Will the Democrats keep their word or send the message that it is OK for the Democrats to be unethical but not the Republicans? Rangel must go.

Rangel will never resign. I don't know much for certain, but this I know like I know the sun rises in the morning.
