WASHINGTON — The House ethics committee’s investigative panel is alleging that former Ways and Means Committee chairman Charles Rangel, D-N.Y., has violated ethics rules.

In a statement released Thursday afternoon, the chairman and ranking Republican member of the House Committee on Standards of Official Conduct said they have received a statement of Rangel’s “alleged violation” of ethics rules from the investigative panel. The lawmakers also said that the committee’s adjudicatory panel will hold a public organizational meeting next Thursday as it moves to begin to consider the allegation.
