Rashida Tlaib CENSURED by the U.S. House of Representatives

The House of Representatives is authorized to censure its own members by the scope of United States Constitution (Article I, Section 5, clause 2).

In the House of Representatives, censure is essentially a form of public humiliation carried out on the House floor. As the Speaker of the House reads out a resolution rebuking a member for a specified misconduct, that member “usually” must stand in the House well and listen to it. In this case, Tlaib was not required to do so.

In the history of the House, censure has been used 26 times, (including the censuring of Rashida Tlaib) Most of those cases arose during the 19th century. In the modern history of the United States House Committee on Standards of Official Conduct (since 1966), censure has been used only nine times.
