    IF (purposely capitalized) the conviction stands, let's see if both parties have the stomach to really clean house, after the historic election on Nov. 2nd. Frankly, I have serious doubts, but I'd love to be surprised and believe there's hope for the country after all. What do you think?

    Gentlemen:

    You're not paying attention. It's a miscarriage of justice.

    How could you possibly give any credence to the subcommittee's ruling? Charlie didn't get his due process don't you know?

    Sarcastically yours,

    sissy

    Mr. Rangel is arrogance on two legs.

    His attempts to manipulate the panel utterly failed. Remains to be seen if he is sanctioned but the panel rebuffed his attempts to wiggle away.

    Rangel's the epitome of a corrupt politician. He's a modern day African American Boss Tweed pulling the strings of his constituents like marionettes. The Harlem Big Daddy spreading sugar around for votes and power.

    Good riddance.

    This is what happens when we put people in a "protected class" and then they get in power. He is so full of himself he thinks nothing can happen to him and sadly he's probably right.

    It doesn't matter what the name is....Rangel...Smangel, etc......if he is fired, the trash from Harlem will just find someone else of equal value...

    It's Harlem folks, what else should we expect?

    He is not as open about his corruption as his predesser Adam Powell, but is just as crooked.

    The frogs are (after Jan. 1st, we'll say "were") in charge of cleaning out the swamp. What do you expect? Anybody know why W. Snipes (the actor) is going to prison but Rangel gets censored? Have we had enough? I thought income evasion was a crime, oh well. BT-100dc

    If enough of us call the IRS and complain about Rangel maybe they will look into it. (maybe)
