    Although I'm not surprised, this is very telling about the state America is in.

    It is sad isn't it.... I bet 50% of the people who voted for him have no idea of the problems he is having...

    The Democrats have become a real "Culture of Corruption." Rangel represents this current Democratic Party perfectly. It is very sad but it is what it is. Make 2010 count people.

    I think in Rangel's case, he is using his problems to save his base. When you compare him to Barney Frank or Chris Dodd, he comes out smelling like a rose. He can portray the white power structure as hypocritical, racist, and vengeful to uppity black folk and coast on his problems.

    To be fair, he did have 5 rivals splitting the vote amonst themselves to be his challenger.

    I think that race would be a smart one to go independent and try to challenge him in november.
