For New York Congressman Corrupt Charlie Rangel, every day is Christmas! Where else can you get paid to suck the teat of the American citizenry, violate the tax laws with impunity, and have the Black Congressional Caucus kiss your fat ass and tell you it tastes great?
Of course, with every Christmas, there comes an early New year’s Day hangover. Most of those hangovers don’t end up with you being hauled off to federal prison, but Rangel may be a special case. To wit:
Can Charlie Rangel please stop committing new ethics and financial transgressions so the House Ethics panel can finish all the old investigations first?!
Word is just breaking on the Hill that the House ethics committee has once again expanded its probe into his corruptocracy:
A House committee voted unanimously Thursday to expand its investigation into New York’s Democratic Rep. Charlie Rangel, CBS 2 has learned.
Congressman Rangel’s sudden recollection this summer of at least $500,000 in cash assets and tens of thousands of dollars of investment income has gotten him into more hot water.
The House Committee on Standards of Official Conduct issued a statement on Thursday that is now going to investigate his apparent lapses in memory as part of a probe that has already lasted 16 months. (H/T – Michelle Malkin)
Congratulations, New York. You are fast becoming the home to the most corrupt politicians in America. Hell, at this point, California’s elected officials look like choirboys next to you!
