Correcting The Post

Joseph A. Califano Jr., the special council from the previous page sex scandal pens an op-ed in today's Washington Post. It is pretty much on the mark although it contains one factual inaccuracy. From the Post:

When I reported our findings to O'Neill and Michel, the dishonor that these members had brought on the House infuriated the two leaders. "Get it out," they said, "and let the committee recommend disciplinary action," which its four Democratic and four Republican members did, unanimously, in July 1983. Crane and Studds were censured by the House. Crane resigned his seat. Studds chose to stay on and was retained in office by his constituents for 13 more years.

Dan Crane did not in fact resign his seat, he lost his bid for reelection in 1984. I know, nitpicking.
