    Rep. Charles Rangel seeking last-minute deal to settle ethics charges against him in Congress

    Read this carefully. The INTENT of the Democrats in charge of House is to find some MINOR wrist slap deal to protect Rangel and the Dems.

    A laundry list of ILLEGAL activities, unethical behavior and down right dishonest practices by Rangel would be swept under the rug if ONLY they can come to some minor wrist slapping decision on how to make this all go away.

    Can you IMAGINE what the Democrats and the Liberals would howl if a Republican Congress was THIS open about sweeping past misdeeds under the rug?

    It has been played several times already. For example when it was announced Rangel was being investigated they made the claim it was racist because he was black and no white congressmen were being investigated at the same time.

    Of course he wants to make a deal. He telegraphed that with his threats of wanting a public hearing. The last thing the Dems want is a tawdry ethics violation hearing of one their major players during an election cycle.

    They would be black leaders and if you REALLY want to see it DUMB ASS, do a goggle for it. It was NATIONAL NEWS when it happened. I am sure there are still archived stories for those to fucking stupid to have seen them when they were first published.

    But then you don't want to see them, this is just an attempt to deflect. You see fuckstain, the meat of the story is the fact that the Dems plan to let Rangel off, and here you are trying to derail it with a demand for evidence that anyone said something about a black man.
