This idiot should be shot and fed to the pigs. What a miserable, greedy, holier-than-thou type. So typical of a Democrat-- they know better than you, and want to raise YOUR taxes, but they can fail to claim income and break as many laws as they want.

Disgusting.

Funny, I thought only Republicans were crooked. Looks like Rangel has been doing this for a long long time. I wonder if he has a yacht that he keeps in tax friendly states like John Kerry does? Typical hypocrite libturd, do as I say, not as I do.

If this guy was a CEO of some company, the FBI would be hauling him away in handcuffs.

Yet this guy as a member of congress, will most likely get a verbal admonishment, and a small fine. Of which he will be able to use his campaign funds to pay.

Do these people ever have to use their own money for things? No wonder it is so easy for them to raise taxes on the little people. It never hurts their own checkbook.

Hang by the neck any politician that does not seek term limits, absolute term limitations. One term,two at the most, with no seniority status for anyone. Politicians are the reason we have problems in this country. From illegal immigration being allowed to deficit spending that has put the country into poverty and beggar status. To think that these crooked idiots are now putting sanctions and restrictions on business, as well as imposing more and more restrictions on citizens freedom is criminality at its best. This back slapping bag of garbage actually believes he was entitled to what he could steal from the tax payers.

All of these charges are lies made up by the republicans because they are filled with hate and racism. Nancy Pelosi is standing by the guy, so we know he's good to go right?

This man couldn't even properly tend to his own affairs without getting into trouble. New York voters sent him to Washington to handle their affairs and now all American citizens get to pay, but not him. It is so disgusting that politicians are elected into office and then treated like royalty. They're civil servants for crying out loud, in Washington to work for the people, not only themselves. You can bet there are other politicians in Washington who have the same or worse problems then this one. The one I'd like to see shipped home, never to see Washington again, is Nancy Pelosi. Nothing would please me more. All politicians in Washington should be audited on their taxes. Would we really be surprised on the results of that? Not me.

Remember, there are no qualifications to be a politician....NONE! The only thing needed is more votes than the other person(s) running.

The future of American is looking pretty bleak if Democrats remain in control of our government, Democrats and liberals seem to be the most needy and self serving group of people in the world.

Oh please, give me a break. Party affiliation has nothing to do with corrupt politicians. There are plenty to go around on all sides. In general, people have become a greedy bunch...Hecker, Maddox, Petters, Enron, Haliburton, the list goes on and on. Like former Senator Ted Stevens, here's another Senator who is still in place at the age of 80. When are we going to begin to limit terms?

This crook should lose all taxpayer funded retirement benefits as well.

It's pathetic that he stole from the taxpayers and now we might still have to fund his retirement years.

But...it's not as pathetic as the voters in his district.

You just reminded me of Jesse Ventura. His only qualification was his big mouth which, to this day, still spews nutty nonsense.

This is just another example of the Democrats throwing a Black politician under the bus. Yes, Rangel has cheated on his taxes, but so have White Politicians Chris Dodd, Conn. and Barney Frank of Mass. Barney and Chris have made millions off Fannie May and Freddie Mac Boondoggles. Dodd has obtained Real estate in Ireland at hugh discounts, no one can explain. Barney Frank ran a gay house of prostitution out of his D.C. townhouse. The Dems are not going after them, because they are white The corrupt Democratic party has had the support of the Black population , while treating black politicians as second class. Charley Rangel served in the U.S. Army , as an infantry man, in combat. That is a heck of a lot more than we can say of Barney Fruits and Chris Dodd! DEMOCRATS, THE PARTY of CORRUPTION

Representative Rengel - turn out the lights, the party's over. Next stop; Barney Frank and Chris Dodd for their total lack of oversight, follow-up and corrective action and failure to the Anerican people disclose the problems at Fannie Mae and Freddie Mac.
