Excuse me, I was channeling Gary Trudeau there for a moment.
Congressman Charles Rangel, democrat from New York, has been found guilty of “knowingly accepted Caribbean trips in violation of House rules that forbid hidden financing by corporations.”
Now this is just the House “Ethics” Committee, not an actual criminal trial, so don’t expect much of anything to happen to Rangel.
Keep this in mind though. Rangel is also under investigation for repeated violations of the federal tax code. Congressman Rangel (corrupt democrat from New York), is Chairman of the House Ways and Means Committee. That is the Committee that is responsible for the bulk of the laws on the tax code.
Even given the findings of the House “Ethics” Committee, Rangel is not stepping down from his leadership position on the Ways and Means Committee. That is pretty much all you need to know about the level of contempt the democrat party holds the American tax payer in.
Update: More at Michelle Malkin’s blog. My favorite from the comments:
I predict Rangel will be appointed “Ethics Czar” by the Obama administration.
Update: The democrats embarrassing, and hypocritical, double standard on ethics violations.
Update: Gay Patriot has details on the so-called “the most ethical Congress ever” and it’s mismanagement by Pelosi.
