Rangel on Recommendations of Being "Reprimanded": "No Comment"

As embatteld New York Congressman Charles Rangel left his office Friday afternoon for a series of votes, he was chased down the hall by a pack of reporters and photographers.

When asked about reports that fellow Democratic Congressman Gene Greene of Texas had said the investigative panel looking at Rangel's alleged violations had recommended to "reprimand" the longtime lawmaker, Rangel held up his hand and repeatedly said, "No comment."

A reprimand would require the lawmaker to stand in the well of the House and be reprimanded by the Speaker, Nancy Pelosi, D-Calif.

The New York Democrat was also asked if he would be returning to his home district of Harlem soon, to which he smiled and replied, "Sorry... I can't talk."
