Charlie Rangel Charged By Ethics Committee.

Fri Jul 23, 2010 3:04 am

This could end up being more entertaining than the Planet Blago trial!! I'll give kudos to Pelosi, it only took 4 years but she is finally starting to drain the swamp.

I'll also give kudos to the committee chair for not allowing an iminent election to hold things up.

I wish the Demo party in NY State and City would seriously consider asking Rangel to not run this fall and allow a replacement person to run for Congress in his current district. There must be a qualified, clearer person than Rep. Rangel that could run and properly represent his district. There is no doubt that any Demo would win in his mainly Black/Hispanic district so replacing him would be no real problem.

She hardly had a choice. Elections a few months away and this would be a major issue. As soon as the election is over Rangle will be let off the hook.
Democrats haven't been this angry since we took away their slaves.

I never thought I would see Rangel and ethics in the same sentence.

If you read the article, the guy sounds like a real jerk--look at his response to Luke Russert's question, and how he told him off.

Too little too late for damage control. She won't lose her majority seat, but will come close to it.

Maybe give him Sherrod's old position a la Sestak.
