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?
Will Rangel tell his House colleagues conducting the trial to “mind their own goddamned business?”blog comments powered by Disqus
