Rep. Charlie Rangel charged with ethics violations - NYPOST.com

Rep. Charlie Rangel charged with ethics violations - NYPOST.com

Back in October I talked about potential ethic violations of Rep. Rangel. Part of my blog talked about a flat tax which ended up dominating the conversation on Facebook. Now that the subcommittee found Rep. Rangal in violation of ethics, but the specific violations have not been made known. Rep. Rangel did have to step down, temporarily, from his Ways and Means chairmanship. I wonder what will take place. On Hardball tonight they did show some video, which I unfortunately could not hear with all the kids running around, but what I did hear was Rep. Rangel trying to accuse the journalist of being from Fox News when in fact he was with ABC.

I had to laugh. Hopefully the full House Ethics Committee will find this bum in violation and throw him out. It is things like this that gives those that want term limits more ammo. We don't need term limits, we need an educated voter to make smart decisions. As I said back in October, why should we pay our taxes if people like Rangel can get away with not paying theirs?
