A win for New York!

Charles Rangel is back!!!

Never mind that:

Mr. Rangel was censured in 2010 after the House Ethics Committee found him guilty of 11 counts of ethical violations, including failure to pay taxes, improper solicitation of donations and failure to report his personal income accurately.

We love a crook, so long as he's one of our's!

But seriously...wouldn't this get the average swinging Richard a little time in the pokey???

Another highly partisan post from a 'radial. How many of your GOP congress critters are in the pokey or have been vs. how many of theirs are or have been?

Depending on who's doing the prosecuting, it'll probably equal out.

Uhm.. it's actually a reasonable question. Your partisan posturing proves the point.

My opinion ? No. But it's up to the voters. Rogues of higher caliber have been members of that august body.

If Clarence Thomas can stay on the Supreme Court, I don't know why anyone would have any issue at all with Charlie Rangel.

My home state sent segregationist/racist/father of child with teenage black maid Strom Thurmond to the US Senate 8 times.

We vote for the person we believe will get the job done for us.

Perhaps this is an indication that Rangel should have a run at the Presidency.

Of course you feel that way. Not a good comparison.

If a radial makes such a partisan post imagine what steel-belted ones could do.

Hey rustbelt!

How come when you say they all do it in dozen of threads over many years, it's OK, but when I invoke the same it's a partisan stance?
