Charles Rangel, Chairman of tax-writing committee, failed to report millions
The NY Post ^

WASHINGTON -- Rep. Charles Rangel failed to report as much as $1.3 million in outside income -- including up to $1 million for a Harlem building sale -- on financial-disclosure forms he filed between 2002 and 2006, according to newly amended records. The documents also show the embattled chairman of the Ways and Means Committee -- who is being probed by the House Ethics Committee -- failed to reveal a staggering $3 million in various business transactions over the same period. This week, Rangel filed drastically revised financial-disclosure forms reflecting new, higher amounts of outside income and numerous additional business deals that had not been reported when the reports were originally filed.

He used the old Steve Martin excuse: “I forgot.”

Being the Chairman of the “tax writing committee” gives Charlie the perfect excuse for being a tax cheat. He can’t make heads or tails out of all of that legalistic, tax mumbo jumbo and he writes the crap.

I'd like to think that the good congressman had this wealth when he began public office.

You know, it is a financial hardship on many of them - to maintain a residence in their home district, but also a residence in DC where they spend most of their lives.

Certainly the good congressman is not like LBJ from Texas who started his political career basically dirt broke, and finished a very wealth man with many assets.

Certainly a fine figure in public office would not use their position for personal means.

You think?

Hmmmm. Who is on the House Ethics Committee? Just wondering why the Dummies are suddenly going after Rangel?
