This photo was Tweeted by Rep. Charles Rangel (D-NY) yesterday. Also in the photo is House Majority leader Eric Cantor (R-VA). Along with the photo, Rangel Tweeted this:
My ears perking up to hear RepCantor saying taxes will go up under Pres Obama. It's called "paying your fair share"!
In 2008 Rangel admitted not paying taxes on rental income from a Dominican Republican beach house after it was exposed by the National Legal and Policy Center (NLPC). It was one of the counts in his 2010 Censure by the House.
Of course, Rangel used to be Chairman of the House Ways and Means Committee, which writes the tax laws. He resigned that post after being admonished by the House Ethics Committee for accepting corporate sponsorship of Caribbean junkets. We exposed that, too.
Many months after the Dominican revelation, Rangel amended his financial disclosure forms to show that he failed to disclose hundreds of thousands of dollars in income and assets. He also promised to release his tax returns after the ethics investigation was over, which he still has not done.
On Tuesday, Rangel issued a statement about Governor Romney that read, in part:
Before he judges other people about paying federal income taxes, Gov. Romney should come clean about the tax returns he's hiding from voters.

That Rangel POS should be in prison, with Waters and 350 other CongressCritter Criminals!
Charlie Rangel lecturing on paying taxes is like Robert Byrd lecturing on the evils of the KKK.
