Panel hits Rangel with 13 alleged ethics charges - Yahoo! News
Why am I, a democrat, starting a thread on a democrat with ethics problems? Because I hate corruption. It does not matter who it is, if you break the law, and abuse your office, you deserve to be punished.AP-5pm-House investigators accused veteran New York Rep. Charles Rangel of 13 violations of congressional ethics standards on Thursday, throwing a cloud over his four-decade political career and raising worries for fellow Democrats about the fall elections.
The allegations — which include failure to report rental income from vacation property in the Dominican Republic and more than $600,000 in other income on his congressional financial disclosure statements — came as lawyers for Rangel and the House ethics committee worked on a plea deal.
