My guess is he’ll probably “temporarily” step down as chairman to allow for time to “clear” his name, or some nonsense like that.

Everything is temporary - like ethics and cheating on your taxes.

No way he just walks away. He will have to be dragged off in handcuffs, kicking and screaming.

If he had a shred of dignity and humility, he would resign from the Congress altogether.

That’ll never happen. Not in this life. Not on this planet.

This was TPM’s line last night.

He is “Temporarily” stepping down from his chairmanship, but not the committee, and not from Congress, whatever that means.

Democrats don’t resign. They have to be dragged out kicking and screaming, or carried out in a casket.

Oh wait, we’re talking about the Dems. They can twist and bend the rules however it suits their purposes.

I thought he was very dignified. Showed me why people say he’s so charming. It was bittersweet. He came in as a reformer, replacing Adam Clayton Powell, they said. I remember Powell having to leave, but I was just a chile.

Hmmm Rangle gets a “cease fire”. I guess the Dems need time to re arm! How long before the Dems look to “behead” a “senior” Republican?

Is this a leave of absence from Congress, or just his committee chair?

"Leave of absence..."

To attend a series of tax preparation lessons at H&R Block. Now throw in a little Sarbanes Oxley orientation and he might know the rules he's helped impose on the public.

And will he return to the chair next week?

Is that going to be his "leave of absence?"

Dems are filthy people. It's really hard not to despise them all.

IF he had a shred of dignity or honor he would not have taken FOUR rent controlled apartments for himself. The law is clear. One is allowed. And why that rich bum should even be entitled to one rent controlled apartment is another disgrace.
