    Rangel charged with multiple ethics violations

    More corruption right on time for elections. Seems the democrats are falling apart.

    Rangel charged with multiple ethics violations - Politics - Capitol Hill - msnbc.com

    House investigative committee on Thursday charged New York Rep. Charles Rangel with multiple ethics violations, a blow to the former Ways and Means chairman and an election-year headache for Democrats.

    The committee did not immediately specify the charges against the Democrat, who has served in the House for some 40 years and is fourth in House seniority. The announcement by a four-member panel of the House ethics committee sends the case to a House trial, where a separate eight-member panel of Republicans and Democrats will decide whether the violations can be proved by clear and convincing evidence.

    The timing of the announcement ensures that it will stretch into the fall campaign, and Republicans are certain to make it an issue as they try to capture majority control of the House. Speaker Nancy Pelosi had once promised to "drain the swamp" of ethical misdeeds by lawmakers in arguing that Democrats should be in charge.

    Probably deserved but none the less surprising. A Democratic chaired committee bringing charges against a fellow Dem at this particular time in the election cycle. Too bizarre.

    These guys are smart politically and the cynic in me suspects this was a calculated move. Am guessing that Rangel is so entrenched in his district that there is no way he is going to get voted out of office. (Am going out on a limb that there are not a lot of Republicans in Harlem). And at this late date no one within his party can contest him for the Democrat nomination. Slick, eh??

    Not sure what impact this may have at the national level. Possibility that it could steal an amount of headlines and take some pressure off of other lesser scandals.

    They certainly had a choice. They could have "not charged him"......

    No they couldn't the news showed his corruption. To not charge him would show that politicians can do any illegal act and get away with it. It would have been very bad for the democrats in November
