HOTSHOT RANGEL DISSED HIS MRS.
By SUSAN EDELMAN and ISABEL VINCENT
October 5, 2008 --
Alma Rangel is a loyal and supportive wife who was scorned and dumped after her husband found new success, her lawyer told The Post.
Just a month after he took the reins of the tax-writing House Ways and Means Committee last year, Rep. Charles Rangel accused his wife of "cruel and inhuman treatment" and "constructive abandonment," which refers to a lack of sexual intimacy, in divorce papers.
Stunned and heartbroken, Alma decided to wage battle against her powerful hubby of 42 years, disputing his alleged grounds and demanding that a jury decide the case, court papers show.
"She felt she was a beautiful wife. He'd have to prove otherwise to a jury of New Yorkers, not just a judge," her lawyer, Sherri Donovan, said.
"She did not want this divorce. She wanted to stay married to him. She's been a loyal wife for a long time."
As the case quietly made its way through the courts, the trouble between the couple began to come to light.
In February, after the congressman endorsed Hillary Rodham Clinton for president, Alma jabbed him politically and declared her support for Barack Obama.
In July, when it was revealed that the Rangels occupied three rent-controlled apartments in a Harlem high-rise - and that the congressman used a fourth as a campaign office - he described an arrangement in which he used a studio apartment next to two that he shared with his wife.

Charlie Rangel is such a pig. The first will be last and the last will be first..remember that, Charlie!
She could have some real dirt on MarxistSocialistLyingLibCommie
Nothing like the threat of a criminal investigation to foster marital reconciliation. :-)
This must be why the dirt is coming out on Charlie - the wife knows where the bodies are buried.
Ole Charlie has withdrawn his request for a divorce.
Too late, bozo.
I can just see her going "eeewwwwwwwwwww!"
He is the poster boy for “constructive abandonment” and when it comes to the idea of intimacy with Rangel can it be called abandonment or the “self preservation instinct” kicking in? LOL
Rangel must be too arrogrant to think it applied to him.
Guess he found out he was wrong
Corrupt Dem Alert): HOTSHOT (Charlie) RANGEL DISSED HIS MRS.
Corrupt Dem Alert???
How is a corrupt Democrat anything to be alerted about?
Would not a Non-corrupt Dem be what you would alert people too?
Excellent point!! The more shocking alert would be things like PATRIOTIC DEM ALERT, RATIONAL DEM ALERT, HONEST DEM ALERT, PRO FREEDOM DEM ALERT
Please feel free to add to the list. :-)
No matter what, this woman made a mistake and married this bum. She is NOT GUILTY, it is justified.
I would have done the same. LOL
He went back to her so she couldn’t be calleed to TESTIFY against him!
