Democrat Dominated Sub-Committee Recommends Lightest Possible Punishment For Rangel

Gee, what a surprise!

The House ethics investigatory subcommittee recommended that Rep. Charlie Rangel be reprimanded, which is the least severe punishment, according to a new report.

The disclosure was made today by Rep. Gene Green (D-Texas), who is the panel's chairman.

A reprimand falls below expulsion and censure on the list of available punishments. {...}

Rangel today denied that a reprimand punishment was recommended.

"It's untrue, it's just not so," Rangel told reporters, without elaborating.

Rangel also said that he has not been asked to apologize for his actions by the ethics committee.

After that little admission,why wouldn't Rangel take a shot at having Congress try him? What does he have to lose?

The only way this changes is if the trial drags on until the Republicans take control of the House. But all Rangel has to do is admit all charges if he sees that happening and the trial stops, so he can walk with his slap on the wrist if he chooses.

Rest assured, Rangel being a founding member of the Congressional Black Caucus and the fact that they're standing in lockstep behind him had something to do with this legislative travesty of justice.

Most ethical Congress evah....


please helps me write more gooder!

I'm confused, Rangel didn't claim at least 500,000 worth of income on his taxes: isn't what Rangel did considered tax invasion and don't you go to prison for that?Why is he still in Congress and why is he still a free man?More than that, why didn't he have to pay penalty and interest at least. I heard they waived that for him too.
