Since 1789, only twenty-three members of the U.S. House of Representatives have been censured. Of these, only one, John Thomas Deweese, represented North Carolina. Deweese resigned his seat in February 1870, after he admitted accepting $500 for appointing North Carolinian Frank Bean to the U.S. Naval Academy. The former Congressman died July 4, 1906.
