Neocon Republicans Try to Ouster Congressman Charles Rangel,but are Blocked by Democrats

Dont Wrangle With Rangel

Don't Wrangle With Rangel

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. 

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.

The ethics committee’s investigation of Rangel’s financial and fundraising activities has been under way for about a year, and that has provided Democrats political cover to avoid taking action. It is unclear how long the ethic’s investigation will continue, but the closer it gets to the 2010 elections the bigger problem for Democrats. House Speaker Nancy Pelosi has promised to drain the swamp of unethical conduct that plagued Republicans several years ago — and helped cost the GOP control of the House in the 2006 elections.

House Minority Leader John Boehner, R-Ohio, said the resolution’s defeat is “the latest example of Speaker Pelosi breaking her promise to have the most ‘open and ethical’ Congress in history.” The Republican’s know all about lying and breaking promises.

House GOP leadership spokesman Michael Steel said the attempt to remove Rangel “highlights the Democrats’ broken promises” for an open and ethical Congress. Now isn’t that the pot calling the kettle black. They always send the house slaves to destroy the strong African-American heroes, like Rep. Rangel. Turn coats like Ward Connerly and Michael Steele, who need to do the honorable thing and restore the reputations of their families and ancestors, and remove themselves from the position to have their captors use them against our own people. True traitors that only Judas can be proud of.

 Hang in there Rep. Rangel, and give them a little hell.
