    funny that when a republican is found to be corrupt or suspected homo (larry craig) they are quickly drummed out of office. the democrats....not so much. that is where the partisan bit comes in. how the two parties deal with transgressors.

    come on Dems, restore my faith and get rid of Rangel in short order.

    You will be quick to notice that it is not always the case that corrupt republicans are "drummed out of office", and that I and the democratic party have zero control over the voters in Rangel's district. You will also notice that the panel that convicted him was half democrat, and still found him guilty.

    Nice try though.

    bull****. just as the republican party (who had no control over the voters in Craig's district) forced Craig to resign. the democrats could force Rangel to resign...IF they wanted to. the problem is......they don't.

    Perhaps, and such will help republicans in the futrue. But someone still ahd to look at his corruption and make the vote anyway. That still saddens me.

    I don't know that that is true. It may be more party than skin color. It could be any number of variables, including the caliber of the other choice. I don't know and don't think anyone else does either. Or at least I've seen nothing to support any particular view.

    truth hurts sometimes. black candidate elected by a predominately black district and you expect people to think race isn't an issue. please

    I guess you also think that race had nothing to do with Marion Berry being repeatedly elected as the Mayor of DC as well.
