Just a couple of weeks ago, Democrat Rep. Chaka Fattah was flying high on Air Force One with Team Obama, but now

Prosecutors charged Rep. Chaka Fattah, D-Pa., Wednesday in a 29-count indictment with racketeering conspiracy, bribery and wire fraud as part of a probe into the 11-term congressman launched by the FBI and IRS in March 2013.

Fattah will lose a committee post, but the Dems found an appropriate replacement:

Fattah’s office confirmed he has agreed to give up his leadership post on the Appropriations Committee, where he is the top Democrat overseeing criminal justice and science spending. He will be replaced by Mike Honda, D-Calif., who is currently the subject of an ethics probe.

Charles Rangel must be feeling a little overlooked and under appreciated right now.
