Podcast: House Ethics Committee Forces Rangel To Listen To Latest Episode

I guess you heard the distressing news that came out of the House ethics committee today.  The panel, having found that Charlie Rangel violated House rules some 11 times, decided the severest penalty possible: mandatory listening of last week's episode of our "It's All Politics" podcast.

For some, that was punishment above and beyond.

This episode focused on President Obama's trip to Asia, the reaction to George W. Bush's new book, the leadership elections on Capitol Hill, and the remaining races that have yet to be called.
