US Rep (NY-D) Charlie Rangel Steps Aside from House Ways and Means Committee Amid Ethics Probe

 

From Speaker NancyPelosi’s most ethical US House of Representatives ever …

New York Democrat US House Representative Charlie Rangel, the chairman of the House Ways and Means Committee has announced that he has stepped aside amidst an ethics probe. The scandal of the Harlem lawmaker lounging in the Dominican amid the back drop of tax evasion was even more than long time Representative Rangel could endure.

Rangel, temporary steps down. Temporary, HARDLY!!!

“The ethics committee has found that Mr. Rangel violated the rules of the House and he’s been admonished,” said Rep. John Boehner, R-Ohio. “As a long-time member of the House he does not deserve to be a member of the Democrat leadership nor as chairman of this committee.”

Political consultant Hank Sheinkopf said the image of Rangel by his villa in the Caribbean, which the ethics committee is investigating for possible income tax violation, will be sent to every close race in America by the Republicans.

The Democrats go from bad to worse as they replace Rangel. Speaker Nancy Pelosi has picked liberal Rep. Pete Stark to replace ousted Chairman Charles Rangel on the tax-writing committee.This will do even more wonders for Obama’s bi-partisan government.

In Stark, Pelosi is picking a fellow Californian to head one of the House’s most powerful committees. Stark becomes the sixth House Democratic chairman from the Golden State.

Stark is next in line for the post in seniority, but his maverick personality had led some to question whether he would get the gavel even on a temporary basis.

One has to wonder what the mindset is of Democrats these days. Are they trying to lose the House and Senate in biblical proportions this November? As Red State asks, is Nancy Pelosi trying to lose the House?

How will Rangel’s ethics violations play in the 2010 midterms? Coming soon to a Republican political ad near you.

      the half million dollars he accidentally found in his couch was probably scammed from the taxpayers as well.
      if we had all the money that the democrats have wasted in the last year, every working American could live high on the hog.
      that’s four democrat politicians this week caught up in corruption.

      Rangel has a retained arrogance of privilege that is slowly but surely being reluctantly relinquished by the members of Congress. Too many of these elected reprsentatives still believe that their own legislation and the law applies to you and me, but not to them. Yet even as proof of Rangel’s tax evasion and sweetheart real estate deals are revealed, he continues to cling to the strange notion that he is innocent of any wrongdoing. It will be a pleasure watching him twist in the wind before his peers, who will abandon him simply to save their skins, and their own tenuous political careers.

      The soggy towel of Obowma’s administration is
      dripping with crooks, no accounts, four flushers,
      Communists, and assorted slime. It’s truly time
      to wring out that rag very well before sterilizing
      it in a fresh tub of Chlorine to sanitize the offices
      again.
