    NOW WE ALL KNOW IF CHARLIE WAS A REPUBLICAN HIS ASS WOULD BE GRASS.





    Pay your taxes or step down.

    That's the message critics are sending to Rep. Charles Rangel, D-N.Y., chairman of the powerful tax-writing Ways and Means Committee and subject of a major ethics probe into alleged tax evasion and other violations.

    House Republicans on Wednesday tried to pass a resolution to oust Rangel from his chairmanship pending an Ethics Committee investigation into a long and stinging list of alleged wrongdoing. The measure stemmed from a probe into Rangel's alleged failure to pay his taxes and disclose income on multiple properties -- as much as $1.3 million.

    But House Democrats were quick to strike down the measure by a vote of 243 to 156. House Republicans refused to accept defeat of the resolution, and asked for a second recorded vote following the first. The reading of the resolution was interrupted several times, and at one point was challenged by Democrats before being put to a vote.

    A representative from Rangel's office on Wednesday blasted the resolution as a "highly partisan effort."

    "highly partisan effort."

    I would hope the Democrats would do the same thing if they found a republican doing the same thing as this fuckin' crook.
    A crook's a crook regardless of party and they should be booted the fuck out, and no pention either.
