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.
