So if we are to follow this clowns logic ~ because he served in the military 60 years ago and is an elected official he should get a free pass for being a criminal? This worthless piece needs to be in jail not censured.

This bum has been a criminal for many many years, endlessly elected by a unintelligent, uneducated group of morons. He deserves noting less than anyone else: jail. The criminal enterprise called the US government is unchanged despite the braying by the ja***ss Pelosi and the other one, Obama. Disgracful.

Liberals want to give Tom DeLay a life sentence (99years) in prison and all he did was send political corporate money to Washington that came back to Texas. Rangel didn't pay taxes for 17 years among 10 other guilty charges and all he gets is censure.

What a Joke.

Rangel Admits House Dems Bought Votes for Iraq Withdrawal

MR. RUSSERT: The House voted for funding for the war with a date certain, March of '08, to begin a withdrawal of U.S. troops. But in that bill was $20 billion of so-called pork, money for cricket infestation, tours of the Capitol, security at the National Convention, peanut crops. Why would the Democrats put that kind of money in such a serious bill?

REP. CHARLES B. RANGEL (D-NY): Because they needed the votes. That bill, we lost so many Democrats, one, because people thought we went too far and others because we didn't go far enough. And so a lot of things had to go into a bill that certainly those of us who respect great legislation did not want in there.

Why is this thief not in prison? I would love to see the IRS start their own investigation against this bum for tax evasion.

It makes me sick how the thief keeps referencing his service to this country as if it is a get out of jail free card.

Those of us who have served our country, and continue to, would never think of using that as an excuse to break the law.

By the way, who are these losers who gave him a standing ovation after his pathetic parting comments? This makes me sick!

Of course, his hommies in New York will continue to support this loser and vote for him again, you people make me want to vomit!
