#rsrh Rangel walks out of own ethics hearing.

I have to admit, I’m of two minds on this.  On the one hand, the guy is as guilty as sin.  On the other hand, I don’t respect an ethics panel created under the 111th Congress and chaired by Zoe Lofgren, either.  Something about how oversight in the former has been made a mockery of by the political party that would assign the latter to what should have been a serious ethics investigation.  It’s hard to take this any more seriously than Charlie Rangel does, particularly since everybody knows that the Democrats won’t expel him from the House even after they find him guilty.

    He’ll be back either this afternoon or tomorrow morning. He does NOT want to let this matter slip over to the next Congress.

    I hope this is on c-span…the youtubes will be Epic

  • BigGator5 says:

    What gets me, is that he wanted to wait until the 112th Congress gets in. Why would he want to wait for a more hostile ethics panel?

  • Phil Smith says:

    I forget where I saw it, BG5, but somebody was opining that Rangel wants to face a Republican panel so that he can claim bias and play the race card. Not an unreasonable opinion.
