The so-called “Ethics” committee consists of three Republicans and three DemodRATS. They will obviously do nothing.

I guess her dictionary doesn’t really explain “integrity” OR “honesty” OR “ethical” the way most other dictionaries explain it...

"Pay your taxes or step down"

Funny...when one us 'little people' don't pay our taxes we go to jail, and even if we do, we have to prove to the government that we didn't cheat. This guy flagrantly breaks the law, and sits in Congress. Beyond outrageous.

from the article: “A representative from Rangel’s office on Wednesday blasted the resolution as a “highly partisan effort.””

Unreal. Just unreal. This guy broke the law...period.

I guess funneling money to the college as an earmark has some ethical implications that I just don't see...

But can't they find somethng a little more damning on this scumbag besides funneling money from a defense appropriations bill to help the Army? Jeez, talk about picking your battles...

The biggest outrage is that Rangel “forgot” to pay taxes on more income than most FReepers will earn in a lifetime.

What an outrage!!!!

Perfect. Make the Democrats go on record supporting corruption. It’s a baby step for the GOP, but a good one nonetheless.

Hoo boy. Damn right I’m going to send Butterfield an e-mail. He didn’t vote against the resolution, but he voted PRESENT!

What a puss-cake. Profiles in leadership, indeed!

It makes my blood boil every time I think about the RAT 2006 campaign against THE PARTY OF CORRRUPTION that helped them take over Congress, with Piglosi leading the charge. The Jurassic media is clearly an arm of the DNC.
