Representative Charles Rangel is going to use a three-way defense for his list of 13 alleged ethical issues. I didn’t do it, I did it, but was inattentive. We want a public trial this fall that can be in the middle of the election season. The Democratic candidates can try to back peddle as they defend their party’s ethics. They se it coming as at least six Democrats have asked Representative Charles Rangel the 20-term lawmaker to resign. If we could double dip and get Representative Maxine Waters, to face an ethics trial at the same time it would be a great fall. She was bagged improperly trying to help a bank, where her husband owned stock that was seeking a federal bailout. We hope the writing is on the wall for Rangel, who is 80, the former chairman of the tax-writing House Ways and Means Committee. For good time Charlie to say that his soliciting donations from corporate deep pockets and foundations that went to the Rangel Center at City College of New York are not suspicious as at best. Rangel did not have to grant any political favors, but it is a total misuse of his public office for private gain. Will we ever be able to prove Rangel used the Ways and Means Committee to provide preferential treatment or favors to potential contributors, probably not? We do know hundreds of thousands of dollars in assets and income were reported years after they should have been. Rangel’s voluntary revisions on those forms shows guilt alone and he should want to step down. This is not in a Democrats nature as there is no blame big enough and no scandal that cannot be pushed a side. All we can hope is a September trial and November fallout inline with November 2.
