House investigators accused veteran New York Rep. Charles Rangel of 13 violations of congressional ethics standards on Thursday, throwing a cloud over his four-decade political career and raising worries for fellow Democrats about the fall elections.
The allegations — which include failure to report rental income from vacation property in the Dominican Republic and to report more than $600,000 in assets on his congressional financial disclosure statements — came as lawyers for Rangel and the House ethics committee worked on a plea deal.
One was struck, people familiar with the talks said, but Republicans indicated it was too late.
Damn straight it’s too late – this fat lazy corrupt scumbag living off the taxpayers succulent boob need to go to jail for abuse of office, lying, thieving, tax evasion and any damn thing else I can think of – but as always under Queen Pelosi he’ll end up getting a little pat on the wrist with the Botox bitch standing over him saying – “Now Charlie don’t do that again … at least don’t get caught. (wink-wink)”
Rangle like so many in congress that have been there to long on BOTH side of the aisle who are of the opinion they are above the law and somehow those silly ethics rules, laws and taxes only applies to the “little people” like you and me.
Rangel and so many more like him need to go – I’m thinking drawing and quartering.
