Rangel Wrangles No More

House Panel Says Rep. Charles B. Rangel Violated Ethics Rules

A House investigative panel has concluded that Representative Charles B. Rangel, Democrat of New York, violated a range of ethics rules. Which means, in Nancy Pelosi's House, he was SO blatant, and was SO corrupt, they finally had to at least pretend to do something about Rangel.

The investigative panel did not disclose any details about the violations that it found, (science forbid!) but one House official who has been briefed on the findings said that they included some that were among the most serious allegations that had been examined.

In its investigation, which lasted nearly two years, the committee looked into accusations that Mr. Rangel received improper discounts on four rent-stabilized apartments he rented in Harlem, that he failed to report or pay taxes on rental income from a villa he owned in the Dominican Republic, and that he improperly provided legislative favors for a company that promised to give $1 million for an academic center named for him. Is the name of the building the Rangel House of Corruption and Hypocrisy? Well, that's what I'd call it.

I dig that science is your new god.

Or at least your new exclamation.
