Nancy Pelosi "Rangels" With the Truth

PELOSI FACT CHECK: Chairman Rangel DID violate House rules

Speaker Pelosi: “All I saw was the press release where they said he did not violate the rules of the House.” (The Hill, 2/26/10)

Ethics Report: “The Report further finds that Representative Charles B. Rangel violated the House gift rule by accepting payment or reimbursement for travel to the 2007 and 2008 conferences.” (Statement of the Chair and Ranking Republican Member of the Ethics Committee, 2/26/10)

The House ethics committee found that Ways and Means Chairman Charlie Rangel violated House gift rules by accepting corporate-funded trips to the Caribbean through an organization called the Carib News. Rangel has a long history with the Caribbean. He owns rental property in Jamaica which he did not report income on for years. He also uses a rent controlled apartment meant for the poor as his office in New York. This is the guy that Nancy Pelosi chose to run the most powerful committee in the House.

- The ongoing saga of Charlie Rangel: Why now’s the time he needs to step down

- Documents Show Rangel Had Info on Corporate-Sponsored Trips to Caribbean

Gary Bauer observed: "With his long list of ethics violations, Rep. Rangel is a heavy albatross around the Democrats’ necks. Republican candidates across the country will surely highlight Rangel as an example of the type of entrenched and corrupt politician who needs to be shown the door."

House Rules---how does one violate them? Do you have to hit a fellow member on the floor of the House. What are the rules. Sounds like no rules for democratic committee chairman and nothing but rules for republicans.

Democrats can do no wrong, Republicans can do no right.

And Pelosi said she was going the end the culture of corruption and bring integrity to congress.

What happened Nancy the glow of power dulled your sense of responsibility?

What I want to know is... Who are the IDIOTS that keep voting this useless, cheat Rangel into office. The guy is a walking, talking poster child for C H E A T E R and yet he keeps getting re-elected. Vote his lying, cheating ass Out of Office!!

Rangle needs to step down from his Chairmanship of the House Ways and Means Committee...he still has other violations being investigated. Any other violations he should be booted out of the House, which Pelosi can do ... after all ... she said she's have the most "ethical" House ever. We've sure seen signs of that over the last year, haven't we? (Sarcasm)

He's a crook!

And can you believe he blames his staff... the politician is never to blame..

Hey, hey,....40 years should give a crook....I mean a Congressman immunity from staff mistakes. ha, ha, ha!

He needs to be charged and tried to the letter of the law.

He is typical of his party leadership, but will be supported by the DemoRat masses just the same.

Jail time for Rangel

Anonymous David Insley said...

If you saw the district he represented, you'd see why he keeps going back to D.C. It's in upper Manhattan and it's a real safe, fun place to hang out. If you go there heavily armed.

Anonymous Ed Dillon said...

He will walk away clean. Just like Clinton did. If any of us, regular concerned Citizens, had lied under oath we would have been jailed for perjury. Bill lied about a sex act in a law suit over his sexual activity. He like Rangel violated the law and should be punished accordingly. But, like Clinton, Rangle will walk away clean and probably will be reelected. Voted for by the same people that helped stick us with Obama. What is America to do when our government is controlled by mediawhores like Pelosi and crooks like Randel.

Anonymous Al Badger said...

And that is primarily what is wrong with this country now. Shall we say" he is too big to fail"? Or is it a vote Pelosi and BO and Dirty Harry can rely on?
When I was young an aide to President Eisenhauer took a Vicuna coat as a gift. No pro Quid Quo...But he was forced to resign by the newspapers just because of the appearance of corruption. We need to get back to that!

Anonymous Mark Lane said...

Congress is a farce. Nothing more more than a club of cronies, very different from the statesmen they are supposed to be. Pelosi has to keep her party mates indebted to her so, in the case the Dems continue to control the House after November, she will keep her power.

Anonymous Sandy Wilson said...

He is a total pos for blaming his staff. I hope they all quit!

Low life scum....fits right in with Piglosi, Dirty Harry, Dodd, Obama.......all liars and hes definitely another empty suit!!!!

The dems and the dem media will not see this as a big deal and definitely not something that would cause anyone to lose their job.....AGAIN......I have a hard time believing they would react that way if a republican had been involved, We are once again going to witness blatant hypocrisy from the dems yet again.

Anonymous Steve Littlefield said...

It doesn't matter Rangel knows that we know he's a worthless, pompous dirtbag. And if they dug deep enough they would find even more. When it comes time for him to stand for his sins he will roast in hell.

Chuck's gotta go on another vacation!! Maybe his corporate supporters can give him a job.... Nancy Pelosi has serious issues with truth, commonsense and reality. OUT TO LUNCH. Hope she drowns in her own swamp....

Why is it that the Dems keep around their crooks all the time screeching that it isn't a big deal? I suspect that dishonesty comes with the "progressive" ideology, and they are under the delusion that everyone else is stupid.

If someone on the Right had committed a fraction of Rangel's ethics violations, the Left would be demanding his head!

Do you think Pelosi would be silent if it were a Republican that was under investigation for tax fraud ?
