Back in 1970, the word on Rep. Adam Clayton Powell Jr. was that, after a quarter century in the House, it was time for him to go.

I guess that they forgot about all of the laws he broken and all of the "perks" he has gotten over the years.So strange that NPR forgot,wonder why,they aren't slanted are they?

Charlie needs to go home. He has "found" enough dirty lucre to take care of himself for the rest of his corrupt life. Go home, Charlie.

Ethics? Yep.


Charlie Rangel is a Criminal and the fact that he was re-elected numerous times is a poor reflection upon the people he supposedly represented. It';s time for them to redeem themselves and kick Rangle in the Arse.

Yes, when you elect a criminal, it's fair to say the constituency is of the criminal element.

When Charlie was allowed to speak for 45 minutes on the House floor after being CENSURED and then was given a standing ovation and hugs it was the lowest moment for the Democrat elected representatives' code of morals in history.

It should have a shameful event where all who condoned his known behavior hung their heads in shame.

But I guess I shouldn't be surprised that the party of the working man only claims that moniker for what they can steal from them.

Yes, illegals that broke the law originally, many minorities that have records, relatives with records, gang members and many others wanting affirmative special treetment. So when he does it, he is just mirroring what his constituants deem normal.

Charlie has it made. When "latinos" and illegals chased the black families out of their historic neighborhoods in Maxine Waters LA District she just abandoned the Blacks and became a leading advocate for the illegals.

Charlie, just betray your people. It worked for Maxine. Of course, Maxine is only a Calif Democrat. Charlie may have too much integrity to act like one of them.

As more, and more Americans witness their corrupt behavior fewer of them say they are Democrats. This is a great country, and most of our people are hones people with morals, and standards we live by. We can weed out the corrupt, and the dishonest politicians and vote i n new people in November. Just do the best we can, as not all politicians are honest.

You believe a pedophile Sandusky is a better man than the President of the United States of America.

yea! Carlie! I'll stick my neck out for him...His Politics are no different than most...indistinguishable from all of them.Most with a Silver spoon,and Filthy rich!

However Charlie was a Koren war Vet,I was a Koren war Vet,Charlie was from Harlem NY,I was from East Harlem NY...Walked the same city streets,attended the schools,and Did the KOREN THING.

Charlies Record in that War told a lot about this man then.He earned a Purple Heart and a Bronze Star for his service in the U.S. Army during the Korean War, where he led a group of soldiers out of a deadly Chinese Army encirclement during the Battle of Kunu-ri in 1950.

Saved Lives ,at great risk to his own.

So this poor black Kid From Harlem pulled him self up,and became a fixture Congressman.....In the Scales of human life values ,Charlie definitely has the edge for being a real American over most....However Politics?..He is no different than The Rest! From the TOP Down,all Political Whores!...his longevity finally caught up with him... But in his youth,on the battle field,Charlie Showed leadership....To bad he did not become a Doctor,or some other honorable profession!!..Charlie was and is a tough Old Bastard! An American Original!!
