07.24.10 Charlie Rangel: Democrats’ Albatross
Not feeling sorry for the Dems right now as they face the upcoming corruption trial of disgraced Rep. Charles Rangel (D-NY), right before the mid-term elections. Rangel’s penchant for stealing money, lying about his finances, and overall sleaziness has been readily apparent for years. And the Democratic Party has not only tolerated it, but embraced it. Now, even with the prospect of Rangel on the nightly news as voters are making up their minds this election season, only one measly Democratic member of Congress has called publicly for Rangel’s resignation.
The Democrats deserve every ounce of scum that the Rangel affair drips on them.
The sad part – as usual – is that the American people don’t deserve the results of GOP gains this November that result from Democratic cowardice and malfeasance.
