Rangel Sues to Overturn House Censure

Rep. Charles Rangel (D-NY) "is suing House Speaker John Boehner and six other lawmakers to overturn his censure on ethics charges, arguing that members of the House Ethics Committee withheld evidence that could've cleared his name," Politico reports.

USA Today notes that in the complaint filed in U.S. District Court in Washington, Rangel alleges "numerous, flagrant, knowing and intentional violations" of his due process rights. He also says that he suffers "irreparable harm that cannot be compensated by money damages."
