    Almost sounds like you're saying that Liberal polticos don't have any morals, or values and that makes it ok when Charlie Rangle commit's the crime of tax evasion.

Oh, and please try to live up to your own ideals because others may not take you seriously when you cannot take your ideals seriously.
    Obviously, you are incapable of understanding my point.

    No I understand you want to think you live by your own high ideals, but it simply is not true. Just because i recognize your hypocrisy doesn't mean I don't understand you wish to believe you are not a hypocrite.

    Was Charles Rangle put infront of the ethics committee? The difference is, that Issa has never brought his criminal activities up for review...making HIM a most definite criminal.

    Behind Darrell Issa's Witch Hunt Is an Ethics Challenged Partisan Hack

    ssa claims the investigations into his own business holdings are just retribution. Perhaps. But then, he does have quite the problem with his financial holdings posing a direct conflict of interest with his position, and he refuses to put his holdings in a blind trust. That’s on him, and it’s not cool.

    In September of 2011, American Family Voices filed an ethics complaint against Issa for using his public position of trust to promote his private financial interests.

    Citing numerous, reported instances of U.S. Rep. Darrell Issa (R-CA-49) using his public position to advance his private financial interests, American Family Voices today filed a complaint with the Office of Congressional Ethics (OCE).

    Mike Lux, President of American Family Voices: “Alarms have been going off for some time about Darrell Issa’s apparent conflicts of interests, and the OCE should immediately review whether the Congressman has inappropriately exploited his position of power for personal gain… Rep. Issa should welcome with open arms such a review by the Office of Congressional Ethics into these apparent conflicts of interest.”

    Want to know why? The New York Times (read in full) reported:

    Even as he has built a reputation as a forceful Congressional advocate for business, Mr. Issa has bought up office buildings, split a holding company into separate multimillion-dollar businesses, started an insurance company, traded hundreds of millions of dollars in securities, invested in overseas funds, retained an interest in his auto-alarm company and built up a family foundation.

    As his private wealth and public power have grown, so too has the overlap between his private and business lives, with at least some of the congressman’s government actions helping to make a rich man even richer and raising the potential for conflicts.

    He has secured millions of dollars in Congressional earmarks for road work and public works projects that promise improved traffic and other benefits to the many commercial properties he owns here north of San Diego. In one case, more than $800,000 in earmarks he arranged will help widen a busy thoroughfare in front of a medical plaza he bought for $16.6 million.

    Then there was his partisan refusal to allow Sandra Fluke to testify regarding women’s health (apparently clergy know more than she about women’s health):
    How ethical is it to make millions while a Congressman with conflict of interest lingering in the shadows and you DON'T have open records and investigations into it?

    Shame. Republicans hold the record for crimes committed in Congress. YOu wanna review Gingrich and DeLay as the recent most publicized?

    But, Charlie Rangel's tax evasion wasn't a crime? Gotcha'!
