Charlie Rangel appeared on CNN Sunday morning and reflected on the House's overwhelming vote to censure him for ethics violations.  He called the experience "embarrassing and painful," but again characterized the vote as "very political."  Do you detect any authentic contrition in this clip?  I don't:



UPDATE: Sweet Justice?

Rep. Charles Rangel (D-N.Y.) may not be out of the woods yet.

The House voted last Thursday to censure the former Ways and Means Committee chairman for violating 11 House ethics rules. Next, he may be facing an investigation at the hands of the Federal Election Commission.

The FEC is investigating a complaint that Rangel misused his political action committee to fund his legal defense over House ethics rules, the New York Post reported Sunday.
