    Rangel fends off five primary opponents

    Rangel fends off five primary opponents - CNN.com

    He's served in Congress for almost 40 years, but Tuesday's primary in New York was unlike any other for Democratic Congressman Charles Rangel.

    The 80-year-old Rangel, facing five challengers and 13 ethics allegations in the House, came out on top in the Democratic primary for New York's 15th district, CNN has projected.
    Unbelievable! The amount of corruption and crime in Washington that so many people complain about and yet the voters of New York still nominate this guy. I know, I know - he's not been proven guilty of anything yet, but come on. The evidence is overwhelming and he's bound to be kicked out.

    Hey now remember Rangel is a Representative, not a Senator so I have no say in that election.

    Rangel represents one of the worst places to live in the Nation and it is rife with every kind of corruption and low life known to man.

    The people in this District wouldn't know how to act if they were to even run into an honest man.

    With any luck the balance of power is going to change in the Congress and a little justice might just come into play.

    But I'm not going to hold my breath.

    It's the most democratic district in the nation, which is why I didn't even bother to vote today.

    Still can't believe this guy is my congressman.

    NO!

    Not "the voters of New York". Merely the voters of that Congressional district. Rangel is entrenched like a strangler fig, something as minor as Rangel lining his own pockets, cheating on his taxes, or moving assets off shore while he's promoting legislation to punish private citizens who move their assets offshore. So long as Rangel keeps the welfare checks flowing, his constituency of whores is going to vote for him.

    That's why a Constitutional Amendment limiting Congressional terms to no more than three in a lifetime is necessary.

    I can guarantee that Rangel isn't going to be impeached. He knows where the other Congressmen have buried their bodies.

    But I do recall that the Messiah said, just three short weeks ago, that Rangel should gracefully retire, or retire with dignity, or some such nonsense like that.

    As a democrat, I am disappointed. Yes, Rangel shares my political views, but corruption should always be punished, and I wish the voters there had punished him with a loss.
