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.

Throw the bum out.
He used the old Steve Martin excuse: “I forgot.”
Tax for thee, but not for me.
Nothing to see here...he is a progressive socialist...go about your business.
Looks like someone is angling for a Cabinet post...
Remember when they wanted Newt to resign because he wrote a book?
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.
Are we seeing a pattern here? :)
and we are waiting to see this dirtbag go to jail.
Demand this cheating gasbag pay for his crimes.
The mortgages may have been in Spanish!
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.
The chairman of the tax writing committee failed to report millions??!! Well that’s cause he knows how high the damned TAXES are!!
“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.”
Hmmmm. Who is on the House Ethics Committee? Just wondering why the Dummies are suddenly going after Rangel?
And then lock him up.
It was good enough for AlCapone...It ought to be good enough for this branch of the Mafia.
Okay found it....
Members of the
House Ethics Committee,
* Zoe Lofgren (Calif.), Chairman
* Ben Chandler (Ken.)
* G.K. Butterfield (N.C.)
* Kathy Castor (Fla.)
* Peter Welch (Ver.)
* Jo Bonner (Ala.), Ranking Member
* Gresham Barrett (S.C.)
* John Kline (Minn.)
* Mike Conaway (Tex.)
* Charlie Dent (Penn.)
Crimes will be ignored for either of those.
Did he also say..
“Well EXCUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUSSSSE ME!” ;)
