Rep. Charles Rangel, D-N.Y., who recently won election to his 21st term, is scheduled to appear in front of the House ethics committee today to answer charges that he violated congressional rules when he accepted a rent-stabilized apartment, solicited charitable donations from parties that had business with the House Ways and Means Committee, and did not pay taxes on rental income. Ethics committee members have indicated that Rangel may receive a letter of reprimand rather than formal censure or expulsion.
