    Bottom line this man is a African American crook. You do not accept trips from corporations. When the Democrats took over Congress they said it would be the most ethical Congress ever.

    “This leadership team will create the most honest, most open, and most ethical Congress in history” – Speaker-Elect Nancy Pelosi (D-CA), Press Release, November 16, 2006

    Rangle needs to accept his wrong doings and step down. He has served to long.



    Ethics panel finds Rangel broke rules - Yahoo! News

    WASHINGTON – Rep. Charles Rangel, the most powerful tax-writing lawmaker in Congress and a 34-year veteran of Capitol Hill, acknowledged Thursday that an ethics panel has accused him of accepting Caribbean trips from a corporation in violation of House rules.

    At least four other members of the Congressional Black Caucus who were also on the 2007 and 2008 trips were exonerated by the panel, a congressional source familiar with the findings told The Associated Press.

    "I don't want to be critical of the committee but common sense dictates that members of Congress should not be held responsible for what could be the wrongdoing or mistakes or errors of staff unless there's reason to believe that member knew or should have known, and there is nothing in the record to indicate the latter," Rangel said at a hastily called evening news conference on Capitol Hill.

    I'm curious as to what race has anything to do with this and why you felt the need to mention this first? :eusa_think:

    Human beings? Why, do you consider African Americans to be not people or do you just define non-whites by their race? :eusa_eh:

    Yes I single them out by race. Why do you think African Americans single themselves out by calling it the Black Congressional Caucus? Anyway what do you think about Rangle breaking ethics rules?
