Mirabile dictu: There is cash the DNC won’t take. They’ve returned $100,000 to Charlie Rangel. The NYPost has the scoop.

In a stunning move, The Democratic National Committee plans to return a $100,000 donation from embattled Harlem Rep. Charles Rangel raised at the congressman’s recent birthday fundraising gala, The Post has learned.

The move comes on the heels of Rangel, one of Sen. Hillary Rodham Clinton’s most vocal supporters and the dean of the New York congressional delegation, being given a speaking role at the convention.

Rangel was feted at his annual Tavern on the Green birthday event a few weeks ago, where DNC chairman Howard Dean was on hand.

Sources said it was announced that night that Rangel would make the donation, apparently from his political action committtee.

But the DNC is now returning the money, several sources said.

A DNC source insisted it was because the party doesn’t accept PAC money.
