Yeah, the House is really gonna come down hard on Rep. Rangel

if he ever runs out of money.
CBS 2 HD has discovered that since ethics probes began last year the 79-year-old congressman has given campaign donations to 119 members of Congress, including three of the five Democrats on the House Ethics Committee who are charged with investigating him.

Charlie’s “angels” on the committee include Congressmen Ben Chandler of Kentucky, G.K. Butterfield of North Carolina and Peter Welch of Vermont. All have received donations from Rangel.

Only Welch had the brains to realize how bad this looks. He returned Rangel’s money — almost twenty thousand dollars.

Good grief. If this guy had a "R" in his title he'd be toast. The MSM is a shill one must think in light of this info. Whatever happened to the fourth rail of government. Is it any wonder that foreign governments are bailing on US debt when the whole of DC is corrupt and out for the lining over their own pockets via the apparent enslavement of the US worker? People get out of debt asap and into some wealth securing assets before the whole thing collapses.
