Rangel sold his Punta Cana beach villa for a song, between $100,000 and $250,000, congressional financial disclosure forms made public Wednesday show.
Rangel, who had headed the powerful congressional committee that writes the nation’s tax laws, was censured by the House of Representatives in December for ethics violations.
A key charge included his failure to pay 17 years worth of taxes on rental income from the Dominican Republic property.
He sold the villa less than four weeks after the censure.
