NY Post ^ | 4/06/14 | Michael Gartland

New York City’s longest-serving congressman won’t pay his rent.

State taxpayers were stiffed out of at least $87,000 when Rep. Charles Rangel stopped paying for the district office he rents in Harlem’s Adam Clayton Powell Jr. State Office Building, records ­obtained by The Post show.

His staffers’ excuse? They lost the lease, according to state Office of General Services correspondence.

“I finally heard back from Congressman Rangel’s office and it seems we haven’t gotten the signed lease back because they lost it!” OGS real-estate specialist Sydney Allen wrote in a July 30, 2013, e-mail to a colleague that was ­obtained by The Post.

Rangel paid $7,253 in monthly rent on the 125th Street office he has rented since 2000, expense reports from 2012 show. But the payments stopped for all of 2013.

Seven grand a month - in Harlem? That must be one big office.

I don’t think you quite get it,
he paid $7,253 in total rent for the period 2000
to 2013, then they lost the lease....
I guess they thought it was kind of over priced or
something...

Then how did the total of unpaid rent come to $87 grand in one year?

I thought they got a stipend to run their home offices from the Congress budget?

Ironic, one crook, Rangel, paying rent in a building named for another crook, Powell. What a country.

Penalties? Ok, just kidding.
Do you think you or I could get a year behind on
a state rental?

I wish I knew the rules for blacks when I was renting. I would have to show up in court in black face and be able to speak Ebonics fluently to get away with those rules.

“Ironic, one crook, Rangel, paying rent in a building named for another crook, Powell. What a country.”

And the “current crook” Rangel ran the “last crook” (ACP) out of office by claiming he was, well a crook! Which was the truth. ACP spent more time in Bimini than he did in NYC. The only difference with Rangel is that he prefers to hang out in the Dominican Republic. Now I have read stories to the effect that ACP Jr. was thinking of running for the seat, charging that Rangel was, a crook. Oh well, they are all half-blacks that “migrated” to NYC from the “Caribbean.”
