Rep. Charles Rangel, D-New York, will be formally admonished Friday by the House’s ethics committee for violating rules on receiving gifts, the committee announced Thursday.
The issue centers on who paid for his and several other members of the Congressional Black Caucus’ 2007 and 2008 travel to the Caribbean.
While the committee found that the other five caucus members committed no wrongdoing, Rangel “violated the House gift rules by accepting payment for reimbursement for travel to the 2007 and 2008 conferences,” it said in a written statement.

Rangel’s staff knew corporations had given money to the Carib News, which sponsored the events, the statement said.
That fact had not been divulged to the ethics committee when Rangel asked for and received approval to accept the trip, the statement said.
