Censure — What kind of punishment is that?

Really..what is censure?  It has been the term I have been reading about and seeing on TV.  Everyone keeps on saying that Rep. Rangel from New York made several ethics violations and definitely pushed laws in which we would expect elected officials to be totally above board.  So..after doing a bit of research this morning I find that very few people have had this punishment handed to them and  it just means that they can’t chair a committee and may not have the respect of the rest of the membership..Really..no fine, no loss of voting power…so really no loss to the person except chairing a committee…Things that make you go hmm…..
