    Rangel Charged With Ethics Violations

    A House investigative panel on Thursday announced multiple ethics charges against Rep. Charles Rangel.
    The announcement means the case will go on trial before a separate ethics committee, which will decide whether the alleged violations are backed up by the evidence.
    Rangel, a New York Democrat, said he looks forward to the trial. He said Thursday that he's been asking for the opportunity to explain himself to his constituents for two years.
    Rangel was chairman of the House Ways and Means Committee until he stepped down in March following criticism from the ethics committee regarding a separate case.
    The announcement Thursday did not specify which alleged violations would be considered during the trial. The panel has focused on several issues, including Rangel's use of four rent-controlled apartments in New York City and his use of official stationery to raise money for a center bearing his name at City College of New York.

    let's hope they conclude this before the upcoming elections.
    It would really be a shame if all the new incoming congressmen had to decide his fate.

    Not that it doesn't play both ways, But, it keeps the spotlight on the crooked (D) for the entire Summer and keeps it fresh for approaching elections in Nov. Not that we aren't reminded every day by the 'Bozo' himself just how inept our gov't is.

    charlie has some entertainment value. every time a reporter asks charlie about the charges he tries to put them back on their heels.

    As long as Rangel is a congressman or running for Congress he can get donations.
    He needs a lot of funds to pay for his legal bills, as many of his current donors fully know, all those corporations that have given fully know just where their monies were going, maybe not the average citizen.
