Charlie Rangel, Class Act

Posted by ginnypub on March 9, 2009

“The American people have entrusted us with their hopes and aspirations for themselves, for their families, and for their future. We will honor that trust.”

- Speaker of the U.S. House of Representatives, Nancy Pelosi (D-CA), November 8, 2006

Rep. Charles Rangel (D-NY), Chairman, Ways and Means Committee, Vice Chairman for the Joint Committee on Taxation, U.S. House of Representatives, under the direction of Speaker of the House, Nancy Pelosi.

He puts the ASS in clASS:

House Speaker Nancy Pelosi (D-Calif.) denied a report on Tuesday that she had called on Ways and Means Chairman Charles B. Rangel (D-N.Y.) to step aside.

“I see no reason why Mr. Rangel should step down,” Pelosi told reporters Tuesday. “I have supported his call for the ethics committee to look into it.”

The Ways and Means chairman has asked the House Committee on Standards of Official Conduct to look into his use of four rent-stabilized apartments in a Harlem high-rise, his use of congressional stationery to solicit money for an educational center in New York that bears his name and, most recently, his failure to pay taxes or report rental income on a vacation home in the Dominican Republic.  September 16, 2008

House Speaker Nancy Pelosi told NBC’s Meredith Vieira in an interview taped Monday that Rep. Charles Rangel should not step down as chairman of the Ways and Means Committee.

Pelosi said she didn’t see “any reason” that Rangel should step down.

Tuesday, the House ethics committee said it’s now expanding its investigation of Rangel.

Pelosi said it’s up to the ethics committee to decide if Rangel should surrender his chairmanship.

“Until they make their decision, which I hope will be soon– I think that he should stay as chair of the committee,” Pelosi said.

Pelosi added, “Mr. Rangel, he loves our country. He loves this Congress. He wants to do nothing but bring credit to it. And he’ll be the first one to know what his course of action should be.”

The expanded ethics committee will investigate Rangel’s role in preserving a tax loophole that benefited a company whose executive had pledged $1 million to a center named after Rangel. December 10, 2008

    you need to stay tuned more to left wing radio, where the talk is more soothing to your ears and the musings more to your liking, if Hannity makes you want to throw up, tune in to Randi Rhodes, for a Malox moment and for valid alternatives..look no further than California and see what unrestrained liberalism has done to a once prosperous state

    This website simply regurgitates the musings of right-wing radio and other infotainment personalities like O’Hannity. American taxpayers are also seeing the Repugs actually in Congress, and their entertainers, endlessly whining and complaining, without offering any valid alternatives.
