Rangel Guilty! Who wudda thought…

The answer to that is a lot of people, and for quite some time I might add.

WASHINGTON—New York Rep. Charles Rangel, a longtime power in the U.S. House, violated its rules with financial misconduct, brought it discredit and will be punished, fellow lawmakers sitting as jurors ruled on Tuesday.Protesting the enduring stain on his four-decade congressional career, the 80-year-old Democrat said he was treated unfairly for “good faith mistakes.” His statement reflected the bitterness of an eight-month career slide, starting with an unrelated ethics ruling that forced him from his coveted chairmanship of the tax-writing Ways and Means Committee.Full Story HERE

    This is a perfect example of how “business as usual” in the fetid swamp of Washington can lead to the collapse of the ethical standards of a member of Congress and completely overshadow the positive things that a long career might include. Rep. Rangel deserves censure and punishment for his actions and unfortunately has now become an icon for those who fall under the spell of the “entitlement culture” that so entices our elected representatives.

    The good news is that this is such a flagrant example that the politicians and the media cannot manage to cover it up and make it go away.

    He’s guilty… Big deal, he’ll get LESS than a wrist slap and right back to business as usual…

    Rangel is a crook, and has been for a long time. Will anything significant be done..? I sure as hell have my doubts.
