    This should be a slam dunk.

    just out of curiosity, it says failure to pay taxes on home in the Dominican Republic as one of the offenses....

    DO we have to pay taxes on homes we may own in a foreign country????

    that part confuses me...

    LMAO!! Guess what? Do you think the ethics committee is going to bring down the roof on themselves?? When you start looking at PAC spending $100,000.00 and $59,000.00 by two members on the right, do you really think anything Rangle did is a big deal? LMAO!!

    I thought maybe Charlie was going to be indicted for high crimes and misdemeanors. Now he's just being accused of what by whom? I won't say innocent until proven guilty, because I'm not by nature, a conservative hypocrite. :eusa_whistle:

    He may owe taxes in the DR, but it doesn't mean squat as a US offense or DR offense, because many people own land in the DR and do not pay taxes.

    And yes, you would have to pay taxes, perhaps, in another foreign country if you own property there. Depends on the country. Some countys are tax free, Germany has a one time property tax, and others are no different than the US. So when you consider a Caribbean property, or Central America, buyer beware of taxes.

    It was the democratic house ethics committee that brought Rangel up on charges!

    how much tax payer money was wasted on hunting down every accusation against either Clinton? they went after the first lady.

    right wingnuts have no conscience or ethics. Can you imagine lefties as bad as some are, funding millions of dollars to get the wife of a GOP President?
