WASHINGTON (AP) – A House Ethics Panel has found Democratic Rep. Charles Rangel of New York guilty on 11 counts of breaking House rules.

The full Ethics Committee will next conduct a hearing on the appropriate punishment for the former chairman of the Ways and Means Committee. The Committee will then make a recommendation to the House.

Possible punishments include a House vote deploring Rangel’s conduct, a fine and denial of privileges.

The eight-member Ethics Panel had sat as a jury to judge Rangel’s conduct. The 80-year-old congressman from Harlem was charged with 13 counts of financial and fundraising wrongdoing.
