I’m not going to get my hopes up given the Democrat foxes guarding the henHouse, but it looks like Charlie Rangel may finally get his comeuppance.

Via the Washington Post:

The House ethics committee is preparing to conduct what to amounts to a trial for former House Ways and Means Committee Chairman Charlie Rangel (D-N.Y.).

The committee has concluded that Rangel violated House ethics rules and will release a public statement of violation next week.

It has been eight years since the U.S. House of Representatives conducted a similar review — that of former Rep. Jim Trafficant, who was later expelled. The decision on Rangel is based on an 18-month investigation into Rangel’s conduct as a member of Congress and how he may have used his House position to influence his private business.

Over/under on who’ll play the race card first?

Flashback October 2009: Maxine Waters: “Many members” are as sleazy as my friend Charlie Rangel; Update: House Dems move to quash Remove Rangel resolution, 243-156

Will Rangel tell his House colleagues conducting the trial to “mind their own goddamned business?”

Flashback: Tax cheat Rangel caught on tape: “Why don’t you mind your goddamned business?”
