|Why yes, this is the equivalent of life in prison.|
“I don’t believe the findings warrant the censure. Censure is a very extreme penalty. If expulsion is [like] the death penalty, censure is life in prison.”Congressman Pete King on Charlie Rangel's Censure
Censure is like life in prison. It took a total about two minutes of standing in the well while Nancy Pelosi read a very short statement and it recommended that he pay his back taxes.
Recommended that he pay his back taxes? Wouldn't I be in jail if I hadn't paid mine? I am pretty sure that Wesley Snipes would say yes.
I don't know King's voting record very well and he seems to be quite tough on terrorism, but at least on this issue he is jackass. It truly is a club, regardless of party.
