Congressman Charles Rangel is suing his colleagues in the House.

Rangel claims that his constitutional rights were violated in 2010.

That’s when lawmakers voted to censure him for ethics violations, including failing to pay his taxes properly and accepting rent-stabilized apartments in Manhattan at below-market rent.

It’s another attempt by the 82-year-old to clear his name.
