for 15 years congressman dan sat in charlie's seat, gripping rangel's gavel, chair of the most powerful panel on pennsylvania, house ways and means
in 94 he was stripped of his hammer, then he lost re-election in his machine tight chicago district, and by 96 he was in jail, sent there by bubba's deputy ag, eric holder
rosty had padded payrolls with phantom paychecks, he was sitting on a warehouse of congressional furniture and "momentos," but what did him in was his involvement in the "stamps for cash" scandal, part of the house post office mess
this poster child for chicago corruption was a big part of what impelled newt into the speakership in 94
rosty and rangel---lotta similarities
except rosty didn't fight his ethics committee so hard, on the eve of election
