After 4 decades of dicking America, it's about freaking time this sob was charged with these crimes as they've only been investigating him now since the new millennium it seems.
To tell you the truth, I'll be one happy American to see his pompous ass in a prison cell, right next to Blago and the multitude of other dems who belong there, and WILL be sent there eventually, if we're ever able to reclaim control of the country.
That is, if there's anything left of it when they get done trashing it like everything else they touch.
You 'mark my words' that this man will not surrender his seat until they're dragging his fat ass out of the capital building in handcuffs, just like so many liberals love to see from wayward conservatives or even one's who haven't done anything illegal like this bum.
So, that's 'two' democrat 'House Ways and Means committee chairman's' caught with their ass in the till denying and denying wrongdoing [the first being Dan Rostenkowski from IL] until, as I said, they finally come in with a crane and literally 'drag them' out of their taxpayer paid congressional offices, straight to Club Gitmo, where the entire damn dem cabal belongs.
Rangel gave up the Ways and Means gavel in February but he won't give this lotto ticket senate seat up until the above described actions or damn near them finally take place. Bet on it. No dem ever goes from DC quietly.
Politics - Capitol Hill - "A House investigative committee on Thursday charged New York Rep. Charles Rangel with multiple ethics violations, a blow to the former Ways and Means chairman and an election-year headache for Democrats.
The committee did not immediately specify the charges against the Democrat, who has served in the House for some 40 years and is fourth in House seniority. The announcement by a four-member panel of the House ethics committee sends the case to a House trial, where a separate eight-member panel of Republicans and Democrats will decide whether the violations can be proved by clear and convincing evidence.
The timing of the announcement ensures that it will stretch into the fall campaign, and Republicans are certain to make it an issue as they try to capture majority control of the House. Speaker Nancy Pelosi had once promised to 'drain the swamp' of ethical misdeeds by lawmakers in arguing that Democrats should be in charge.
Rangel led the tax-writing Ways and Means panel until he stepped aside last March after the ethics committee criticized him in a separate case — finding that he should have known corporate money was paying for his trips to two Caribbean conferences.
