Busted Again: Charlie Rangel Fails to Report $200k in Political Donations
Gateway ^ | September 15, 2013 | Rachel Pulaski

Tax cheat and crook Charlie Rangel is back in the news again for not disclosing funds. In 2010, Rangel lost his chairmanship of the Ways and Means Committee because of an investigation into 2 corporate-funded trips to the Caribbean. Later that year, the House of Representatives formally censured him after he was found guilty of 11 ethics violations. Violations included failure to disclose over $600,000 in assets on a financial disclosure report as well as short changing the IRS for 17 years on rental income from his villa in the Dominican Republic. He also raided his PAC for $393,000 to pay legal fees.

Now, Rangel and New York City Councilwoman Inez Dickens are in the hot seat for not disclosing $200,000 in funds for their Harlem political club they have had since 1999.

...

“Coincidentally”, Dickens also chairs an ethics committee

I wonder what kind of promotion he can expect for his crimes?

That's what we know about; how much more don't we know about?

If you’re black you can stalk and rob people —any bad repurcussions and they’ll have a candle vigil.

You’ll get tuition breaks if you seem exotic enough.

You can kill 300 Mexicans —no one will go to jail.

You needn’t report political donations.

We are DYING to be diverse.

In his defense, this is probably peanuts compared with the undeclared cash flow of his corruptions. Thanks george76.

BUSTED? Hardly! Once again the tax cheat will get a pass. Maybe, just maybe he’ll have to pay what he owes, but with no penalties or interest.

It pays to be in the “RULING CLASS”

. . . after he was found guilty of 11 ethics violations.

Not to mention tax evasion and rent fraud.

Dog bites man. It would be news if Rangel reported all of his donations.

What difference does it make?

As long as the 'low info' voter has his SNAP card, section 8 house, welfare check, and all the other subsistence payments, scum like Rangel could most likely commit murder and still be re-elected.

This is not a problem...they are both democrats and both are black.

You might be a racist for even reading the article.
