So now the news is that they are going to only repremand Rangel.

Apparently, laws no longer need to be followed under the Obama administration.

We've got Geithner cheating on his taxes --> no enforcement of law, rather appointed as Sec. of Treas.

We've got Obama's Aunt living in the US illegally --> no enforcement of law.

We've got AZ trying to enforce the WRITTEN Federal law --> but then a Federal judge rules it is not to be enforced.

Now we have Rangel. Major illegal activities for YEARS --> result is a quick panel review by his party's "ethics" committee which plans to give him a free ride.

Man, these corrupt politicans should be kicked out of office and put into prison.

When they make a movie about his life, they should get Whoopi to play him.

We accuse those politicians who are corrupt and betray the public trust. It is really the public that is partly to blame for a corrupt government because by their votes they allowed incompetant and dishonest power seeking politicians to gain control over them. The remedy for deceiving corrupt politicicians is in the power of the people to vote them out and keep them out.
