Has Charlie Rangel lost his touch?

His sob story was a little too much for me today...

  • Touch? No....Representation. He lost his representation. Why? Because he tried to pay his attorney with a check from the wrong account. Another ethics violation stopped in progress!!

  • Meh...old people do weird stuff like that all the time.


    If old age is an 'excuse' then he SHOULD NOT have leadership  role, nor even be in the committees, or hell, he shouldn't even have any decision making ability that can impact the lives of Americans...

    blame it on old age...I dunno. I can't read his mind. It just seems to me that he has done so much unethically for so long that he no longer knows what is ethical and what goes against house rules. It's time to get rid of him.

    Why is it the corrupt politicians always seem to make "mistakes" where they forget to paying taxes, didn't realize they shouldn't be living in rent controlled apartments, accepting freebies and kickbacks for their vote/support by lobbyists, etc., and NEVER make mistakes where they end up paying TOO much money!!??! Is it a Democrat thing or an age thing?! LOL :o)

  • HA. That is so wrong. WHy is Tom Delay still walking around?

    What did you want, someone to knock him off? It hasn't been proven he did anything wrong yet and he's been to court plenty. They still have not found anything in this trial. Maybe you would like to hire a hit man?

  • He claims to need a million dollars to pay for counsel! I think our legal system has lost touch. That's crazy!

  • Charlie Rangle has lost his mind. I think we are seeing a good argument for term limits.
