A House panel has found senior Democratic Rep. Charles Rangel violated ethics rules on 11 of the 13 counts lodged against him.

The panel decided Rangel’s actions violated rules regarding the use of congressional staff and stationery, as well as requirements to accurately report his assets and improperly using a rent-stabilized residential apartment as a campaign office.

The Harlem lawmaker faces a possible reprimand, but expulsion from Congress remains unlikely.
