I really wonder if Rangel has thought this through. His censure has disappeared down the memory rathole along with every other Democrat that has been caught with their hand in the cookie jar. The state-run media only reports Republican misdeeds in retrospective.
All he is doing is bringing this back to the front page (or at least page 2). Of course, it won't make a bit of difference to his constituents. He has made a career of blaming his (and his constituents) troubles on someone else, or another group of people. He is just reading from the same tired playbook.
I figured as much and doubt Charlie has thought it through. Thanks.
This is about having a lawsuit...any lawsuit..to form a defense fund for...which he can shake people down for contributions....aka a Charlie Rangel Retirement Slushfund.
