First there was a resolution to take a privilege away from a member of Congress due to his corrupt behavior:
House Members Wednesday will have to cast a recorded vote on whether it is acceptable for Ways and Means Chairman Charlie Rangel (D-NY) to evade federal taxes for over a decade, and yet pay none of the penalties and interest charges that the IRS piles on the average American taxpayer for far less serious offenses.
House Republican Conference Secretary John Carter (R-TX) this morning is introducing a Privileged Resolution calling for Rangel to be removed as Chairman of the committee that oversees the IRS and the federal tax code, until the 16-month investigation of multiple tax, federal disclosure, and ethics violation charges against Chairman Rangel has been concluded.
Rangel in August made new confessions of failure to report nearly a million dollars in assets on federal disclosure forms. Since the Ethics Committee investigation of Rangel began in July 2008, it had already been expanded twice before the latest revelations.
Of course, the politics of racists got in the way and it was voted down:
Final vote tabling Carters resolution to remove Rangel from W&M chairmanship: 243-156. 19 voted present. 3 REPUBLICANS joined the Democrats....
The 3 Repubs who joined Ds to table remove Rangel resolution: King (NY), Rohrbacher & Young (AK).
While one of the biggest racists excused Rangel's corruptness because...well, everybody does it.
Many members of Congress suffer from the same disclosure issues as Rep. Charles Rangel (D.N.Y.), one of his allies said Wednesday.
Rep. Maxine Waters (D-Calif.) downplayed the seriousness of allegations against Rangel that he failed to disclose sources of income and pay taxes on some properties, saying that many lawmakers suffer from innocent lapses in judgment when filing mandatory financial disclosure forms.
I want to tell you, there are many members who, if you go back over all of their records, over all of the years, youre going to find that there were disclosures that were not made, Waters said during an appearance on MSNBC Wednesday morning.
Everyone hides millions of dollars worth of assets don't they?
But from Maxine Waters it shouldn't surprise anyone, hell....even the leftist group Citizens for Responsibility and Ethics in Washington have her as one of the top 15 most corrupt officials in Washington.
So in her case....she's just backing a fellow scumbag, who just happens to be black. Kinda doubting she would be doing the same thing for a white member.....and the doubt grows stronger when we see this today:

The democrats need to be officially renamed the Corleone party.
You forget - they think they’re entitled because they were or are victims.
BTW, the accurate name of this outfit would be the Democratic Congressional Black Caucus.
“Never tell anyone outsdie of the Caucus what you’re thinking again!” Don Charlie
Did they discuss this with the Congressional White Caucus?
The ‘Black Caucus’ needs to be abolished. It’s ‘separatist’ and un-American.
Without the CBC nancy would be toast.
The white democrats are afraid the black ones will call them raaacciiissstttsss.
The stink and corruption coming from Washington continues to increase.
