Rangel dodges the bullet again with a little help from his corruption-enabling friends.

“Some days, I think they are already here, and running our government.”
As Quinn of Quinn and Rose has been saying, “We have elected the enemy.”
I was stationed there for 2 years on an old Coast Guard cutter. First out at the end of the hook and then right downtown when they finished building the new pier in 1979. I really liked the area and I did a good amount of backpacking in the Olympics.
King must have a skeleton or twelve in his closet.
Thanks. I’ll use that for a while until I’m ready to go back to FUBO.
“Culture of Corruption!” Remember that shrill cry of yours, Nancy?!?!?
I was thinking that too. Rangel may have the goods on King.
The IRS is taking money out of my Social Security check for a small amount that my ex-husband did not pay on our taxes years ago for a little money I earned and he forgot to include. He is gone now, so there is no way to get him to explain. The amount was only $289.00 and I fought it and lost. Imagine...Charlie gets away with thousands of unpaid taxes and fraud, as do other Dems. And I have my Social Security reduced to pay this small debt!!!
I thought Peter King was better than that. How could he vote that way?
It’s sure a small world. There are more folks living here than back then, but it’s still just as beautiful. I can see the end of the hook from my house on top of Mount Pleasant. I have been here since 1973.
I play on that water, so I love the Coast Guard. Before I retired, one of the many hat’s I wore was that of SAR Coordinator, so I worked very closely with the CG, especially the air support. In the 4 years I had that responsibility, I found every one of you hikers. LOL
If by silver lining you mean he may fail to win relection no chance. He's a hero in Harlem who never fails to bring home the pork. If you mean we will take over the house and bring him to justice, I'd like in on that dream.
Never be fooled. The Obama Administration has more power than even they hoped for. I beleive that if they called for the public execution of Republicans on Capital Hill tomorrow, the left would not only abstain from trying to intervene, they would cheer it. This is so dispiriting. God help us.
Republicans should get up and call Nancy and her ilk a democrat culture of corruption. As it stands though, Republicans have no balls.
Since there's a kenyan in the White House I'd say pretty certainly they are here.
Remember folks that WE are the government. Those people sitting in the chairs at the Capitol and White House are usurpers
Curious. He's mostly pretty solid from what I've heard about him. Maybe someone in his district can get a reasonable explanation for his odinga style vote.
A fun YouTube mocking of Charlie “Elmer Fudd” Rangel -
With every action these numbskulls take the prognosis for coming out from under this gets worse.
As far as I’m concerned, there isn’t any “reasonable explanation” for this. I live in Poe’s district and I voted for him since he was a state Judge. I fired off am email and gave him a big “what for?” I’m waiting on the reply..
Repubs voting pro-Rangel
Rohrabacher (CA) what the hell is his problem, what was that thing he voted wrong on a couple weeks ago? Oh right to admonish Joe Wilson. But he thinks Rangel should stay chairman of Ways and Means? WTH Dana?
Peter King probably is giving a fellow New Yorker some in-state courtesy.
Don Young is hoping by going easy on Rangel, the Feds will go easy on his corruption.
Nope. King's always been a reliable RINO who works to keep corrupt RATs in power. He's best known for leading the fight AGAINST the Clinton impeachment back in '98. Perhaps you are confusing RINO Peter King of New York with Conservative Steve King of Iowa.
You're surprised the biggest Clinton apologist in the GOP would defend Charlie Rangel as well? I'm not.
