Ethics Panel Finds Wrongdoing by Rangel, Sources Say
Posted on Jul 22, 2010
The House Ethics Committee isn’t known for throwing its own to the wolves, but word is that Rep. Charlie Rangel, the subject of a two-year investigation, could get slammed.
Those anonymous sources that get quoted everywhere are telling media outlets, including The New York Times, that an investigatory subcommittee has found evidence of shenanigans.
Shenanigans or not, the regular House panel, famous for developing some of the world’s most charitable admonishments, has yet to have its say.
Update: The Washington Post has some updates here.
Rangel’s alleged violations may include getting a sweetheart deal on New York apartments, performing a legislative favor in exchange for a hefty donation and not reporting income on a Dominican villa. —PZS
