Breaking: Charlie Rangel Guilty of Ethics Violations
Democrook Charlie Rangel is guilty of 11 ethics violations.
The Ticket reported:
A House Ethics subcommittee announced Tuesday that they have found Rep. Charlie Rangel (D-N.Y.) guilty of 11 of ethics violations.
Chairwoman Zoe Lofgren (D-Calif.) said the committee rolled two charges together, meaning that Rangel was ultimately charged with 12, not 13 charges as originally stated. She added the committee was split on one of the 12– identified as a charge of harming the credibility of Congress.
Rangel walked out of his House trial yesterday in protest over being unable to afford legal representation. Charges included improperly soliciting donations for his center and New York’s City College, a failure to provide complete financial disclosure information, and improper use of a rent-controlled apartment for campaign purposes.
It sure was nice of Democrats to hold this hearing after the election, huh?
