40 years is too long for anyone to serve in congress. Proof that the longer one is there; the more corrupt one gets. Hope the crook ends up in jail. Another tax cheating democrat.

I disagree....
Untill the man is found GUILTY, he is still innocent and should be free to maintain his employment and position.. Stepping down from Ways and Means was good gesture to remove any doubts during the investigation, but I feel that until he is tried AND convicted, he is still innocent...

Wow, did I really just defend a Liberal Democrat????

If the charges are true, and they amount to either a crime or a violation of the House rules, then he should have to face the consequences, whether it be prison or some sort of sanction. But until then, while the publicity has undoubtedly smeared his good name and reputation, I would have to agree with Perfection and insist that he be entitled to maintain his innocence, unless and until he's proven guilty or he freely admits his guilt.

Looks like it....
IF he is indeed guilty, then this will be a CLEAR example of what is wrong with congress... IF he is guilty, and does not serve any "time" then congress believes they are above the law as compared to the average citizen.. The average "JOE" would serve time if they were indeed found guilty of the chagres against Mr. Rangle....

Congress believes they are better than us average citizens.. IF this case is proven, it shows beyond a shodow of a doubt how they view the citizens as compared to thier crimes...

Panel charges him with 13 violations of their ethic standards.

Punishment - Slap on the wrist.

This is what you get when investigations are done internally.

Hell will probably get reelected to.

He is a democrat, being investigated by the ethic panel that has taken 2 years to get this far, the ethic panel has been pleading with Rangel to do a deal, and he has been refusing because he will not admit to doing anything wrong, He will get a slap on his wrist, no change in Washington like normal.

As corrupt and dishonest, most of these people are, I would be willing to bet Rangel is the most honest of them all and used as sacrificial Lamb.

But in all honesty, even though I'm a Conservative, I've always liked the guy, he was always polite and nice to everyone to a fault and I can't really remember him havibg a bad thing to say about anyone.

House ethic sub committee convicts Rangel on 11 of 13 charges, now goes to the full committee.

Guess it is Bush's fault too.

What I find very strange is the length of time he has been getting away with this and the Democrats are just now dealing with it. Oh wait that's right they wanted this done during the election to show the American people they can be trusted.

Oh well.

It didn't work

They aren't "dealing with it".
The whole thing is an internal coverup process. Got alot of damn gall calling it a trial.

How about we do it in court and send Adam Clayton wrangel to JAIL where the criminal belongs
