A House Ethics panel charged Rep. Charles Rangel (D-NY) with 13 counts of violating House ethics rules, placing the Democrat's 40-year political career in jeopardy. Chairman Zoe Lofgren (D-CA) pictured here with ranking Adjudicatory Subcommittee member Michael McCaul (R-TX on the right), made clear that she wanted the committee to be unanimous, leaving little chance for agreement without Rangel capitulating on virtually all counts. Reps. Kathy Castor (D-FL) and GK Butterfield (D-NC) sit on left. On July 29, 2010 on Capitol Hill in Washington, DC. (Photo by Jeff Malet)
