    The clock is ticking on tax cheat Charlie RangelBy: Byron York Chief Political Correspondent September 1, 2009 It hasn't gotten much attention amid news of Ted Kennedy, Obamacare and the worsening outlook in Afghanistan, but an extraordinary situation is developing in the House of Representatives. With each passing day, it's becoming more clear that the powerful committee chairman in charge of writing America's tax laws is a financial wheeler-dealer, a serial asset-hider, and a tax offender. Rep. Charles Rangel has been in the House since 1971. He's as old bull as you get in the Democratic hierarchy, and he waited...

ResignBy: Mark Tapscott Editorial Page Editor 08/28/09 4:52 PM EDT Want to understand why 2009 has witnessed the eruption of Tea Party and Town Hall protests of unprecedented intensity? Look no further than Rep. Charles Rangel, the New York Democrat who is chairman of the House Ways and Means Committee that writes tax law for the rest of us. A parade of steadily more serious revelations was capped with news that Rangel somehow forgot to report as much as half a million dollars in assets and income on his 2007 financial disclosure report.

Charles Rangel in his latest spate of tax missteps -- but only as long as no more embarrassing revelations come to light, sources told The Post.

That's on top of ongoing House Ethics Committee probes into four other areas of Rangel's financial past -- including...

    Teddy Kennedy was memorialized at a solemn funeral Mass on Saturday in Boston in a service reminiscent of the way Kennedy spent his days on Earth: bringing together disparate elements of the America's political and social worlds, flummoxing his foes and inspiring his more numerous admirers – and, albeit through surrogates this time, tirelessly working the room on behalf of his latest legislative project. This was a "Catholic" event in both the uppercase and lowercase sense of the word--a grand religious ritual that matched or exceeded anything even in the storied history of the Boston church, and a "catholic,"...

    Police in the Mexican border city of Tijuana say they have arrested six men for stealing pieces of the U.S. border fence to sell as scrap metal. Holes in the border fence once were more commonly made by migrant smugglers, but fewer people are trying to cross because of a weak U.S. economy and a crackdown on immigration. The Tijuana police department says the suspects intended to sell the steel sheeting as scrap. The first two men caught cutting into the fence on Monday. An alleged accomplice was detained Tuesday with 11 pieces of fencing. The U.S. Border

    Ever notice that those who endorse high taxes and those who actually pay them aren’t the same people? Consider the curious case of Ways and Means Chairman Charlie Rangel, who is leading the charge for a new 5.4-percentage point income tax surcharge and recently called it “the moral thing to do.” About his own tax liability he seems less, well, fervent. Exhibit A concerns a rental property Mr. Rangel purchased in 1987 at the Punta Cana Yacht Club in the Dominican Republic. The rental income from that property ought to be substantial since it is a luxury beach-front villa and...

    IRS workers are demanding the right to cheat on taxes without severe penalties like Obama's cabinet nominees. Treasury secretary Timothy Geithner, in charge of the IRS, failed to pay failed $34,000 in taxes before his nomination. Five other top Obama cabinet nominees have been caught in arrears on their taxes. However, IRS agents can be fired for simply filing a late return or failing to report a few hundred dollars of income. IRS employees are very angry at the double standard.

The IOC said Friday there is still no proof anyone cheated, though it asked the International Gymnastics Federation to investigate “what have been a number of questions and apparent discrepancies,” spokeswoman Giselle Davies said. However, all the information the Chinese gymnastics federation presented supports its insistence that its athletes were old enough to compete.

    After nearly a month of silence following accusations of steroid use, Roger Clemens and his legal team exploded into action. They filed a lawsuit late Sunday night, then staged an emotional press conference yesterday, airing a secretly taped conversation with Clemens' accuser, former trainer Brian McNamee, that they contend clears the seven-time Cy Young winner. In fact, little was provided in the way of hard evidence. McNamee did not admit wrongdoing on the tape. A surprisingly impassive Clemens did not ask him to. Clemens saved his anger for the press conference. After weeks of heavy scrutiny, that's where his frustration...

    BOULDER, Colo. - An investigation of a professor who likened some Sept. 11 victims to a Nazi found serious cases of misconduct in his academic research, a University of Colorado spokesman said Tuesday. One member of the five-person investigative committee recommended that ethnic studies professor Ward Churchill be fired, and four recommended he be suspended, university spokesman Barrie Hartman said. Churchill has denied doing anything wrong. He said earlier Tuesday that he had yet to see the report. University officials had earlier determined Churchill could not be fired for his comments about the terrorist attacks, but they launched an inquiry...

    A blood-soaked retired cop screamed frantically for help yesterday as his new bride - an active NYPD officer - calmly shot him again and again on a Brooklyn street for sleeping with another woman, police sources said. "She's a cop! She's a cop! I'm going to die!" shouted Todd Jamison, 43, who married the alleged shooter in August, only to cheat on her with a woman he met in December. Driving a rented Chrysler 300 sedan, Alison Jamison - who allegedly had repeatedly threatened to kill her unfaithful husband - tracked him to East New York and rolled up behind...

    ...If there are serious criminal acts being covered up, then this election could prove to be unlike anything seen before in this country. Would a party guilty of high crimes against the people of Canada willingly go down to defeat running an honourable campaign? Would they restrict themselves to fighting a war of words and ideas when losing power is synonymous with having their crimes exposed, prosecuted and punished? I don’t think so. I expect that such a party would have no problem resorting to winning by any means possible, legal or not...

    The Queens judge who sparked an uproar when she helped a defendant escape arrest through a back exit of the courthouse should be removed from the bench, a disciplinary panel ruled Tuesday in one of its most contentious decisions on record. The judge, Supreme Court Justice Laura D. Blackburne, was immediately taken off active duty by the Office of Court Administration. She faces a lengthy suspension and then, if the Court of Appeals affirms the disciplinary ruling, the end of her nine-year judicial career. In a 9-2 vote that included a forceful dissent, the majority of the Commission on Judicial...

    Argentine football hero Diego Maradona has said he is unrepentant about using his fist in a controversial goal against England in the 1986 World Cup. Speaking on his TV show, Maradona said the intervention, which he nicknamed "The Hand of God", was justified. "The truth is that I don't for a second regret scoring that goal with my hand," he said on the programme. The footballer apparently defended his goal as his response to Britain's claim to the Falkland islands. He said he wanted to let Argentines and the whole world know the truth about a key moment in football...

    A French appeals court on Thursday confirmed a conviction of U.S. billionaire George Soros for insider trading and a 2.2 million euro ($2.87 million) fine. ADVERTISEMENT Hungarian-born Soros had appealed a French court’s 2002 decision which found him guilty of using insider information regarding a failed 1988 corporate raid on bank Societe Generale to make $2 million on the company’s stock. The financier turned philanthropist told the appeals court last month he did not believe he had done anything wrong. His lawyers said they would appeal Thursday’s decision. Societe Generale was privatised in 1987 and its stock rose the following...

    Guest columnist King County voters in good hands By Corky Mattingly Special to The Times I've been particularly troubled by one recurring comment regarding the gubernatorial recount in King County. It pertains to county Elections Director Dean Logan's professionalism and integrity. There also have been suggestions that Logan's decisions are based on partisan politics and are without justification or regard to Washington state law. As president of the Washington State Association of County Auditors, I assure you nothing could be further from the truth. All 39 counties conducted the recount process according to the rules currently in place, which are...

    don’t get it. My favorite columnists are writing volumes to hang Scott Peterson. Crowds at the courthouse resemble lynch mobs. Peterson is being compared to Hitler, Ted Bundy, Jeffrey Dahmer and a hit list of gruesome ax murdering child molesters. But the columnists forgot one thing, where’s the evidence? The news media has laughed a little too hard at the possibility of a satanic cult. If you do the research, there are THOUSANDS of unrecovered missing women and children in California that the media ignores. There ARE childhood survivors of satanic cults who have testified to graphic descriptions of siblings...
