    In Response to Hey Bela, about Charlie Rangel:
    The House ethics committee's decision to admonish New York Democratic Rep. Charlie Rangel over improper corporate-sponsored trips to the Caribbean leaves both Speaker Nancy Pelosi and the ethics committee itself facing some difficult questions. When then-Majority Leader Tom DeLay (R-Texas) was admonished by the ethics committee in October 2004, Pelosi and other Democratic leaders went on the offensive against him. “Mr. DeLay has proven himself to be ethically unfit to lead the party,” Pelosi said at a press conference the following day. “ The burden falls upon his fellow House Republicans. Republicans must answer : Do they want an ethically unfit person to be their majority leader or do they want to remove the ethical cloud that hangs over the Capitol?” Rep. Steny Hoyer (D-Md.) — now the House majority leader — said DeLay "certainly ought to step aside as leader at this point in time because I think his credibility has been undermined by these findings." Six years later, the shoe is on the other foot: Republicans have previously called for Rangel to lose his chairmanship over his ethical troubles, and some of them — including Indiana Rep. Mike Pence — renewed that call Thursday night. How will Pelosi and Hoyer respond? Neither had anything to say about Rangel's future Thursday night, but the issue is certain to be a central topic for Democratic leadership in the days ahead. The ethics committee's decision on Rangel's trips resolves just a small part of the ethical controversy in which he's caught up. The ethics committee is still investigating a variety of issues related to Rangel's personal finances, including his use of rent-stabilized apartment, his fundraising on behalf of a research institute bearing his name, and his failure to declare hundreds of thousands of dollars on income and assets on annual financial-disclosure reports. The ethics committee, meanwhile, appears to have issues of its own. http://www.politico.com/news/stories/0210/33564.html

    Charlie is "special". He gets a free ride on this. Not because she's a woman, Bela Pelosi doesn't have the cojones to touch him.

    Her quote below shows you just what the liar this biatch is.

     Both Parties are the same when it comes down to the wire.  All about them  ( the Borg), do what I say not what I do.  "We THE People" just have to support the new guy running, with reason.  Vote for the best person not the party.     The Borg last night tried to sneak a bill through that would limit CIA integrations.   It would be a crime for a woman to interrogate an Islamic.

    Obamas concern and sensitivity about Islamic terrorists APPEARS to superceed the best interests of this country... again. He's campaigning for world czar.

    Charlie Rangel should absolutely step down as Chairman. Dems are heading down the same road repubs did in 2004 of becoming the "party of corruption".

    Re: Hey Bela, about Charlie Rangel

    Beleaguered Rep. Charlie Rangel defied bipartisan calls for him to step down as chairman of the powerful House Ways and Means Committee despite an ethics committee report that found he violated House rules by taking corporate-funded trips to the Caribbean.

    The New York Democrat said Friday that the report "exonerates" him because it says there is no evidence that he knew the trips were sponsored by corporations.  

    The committee said it couldn't determine whether Rangel knew about the financing but found that his staff did -- and concluded Rangel was responsible for learning the truth.

    Two Democrats have called on RangelRep. Gene Taylor of Mississippi, the first Democratic lawmaker to echo Republican calls for a change in committee leadership, said Friday that Rangel should "either step down or step aside until this is resolved."

    The National Republican Congressional Committee issued a press released titled "It's Official: Rangel's Crooked."

    "Once promised to be the 'most ethical Congress in history,' the Democratic majority now has a serious ethics scandal on its hands thanks in part to House Speaker Nancy Pelosi," NRCC spokesman Ken Spain said in a written statement. "For months, and even years, Nancy Pelosi has been promoting corrupt actors within her caucus ranks when she should have been punishing them.

    "In this time of great economic uncertainty, struggling middle class Americans deserve better than to have a tax cheat chairing a powerful congressional committee that directly impacts the financial livelihoods of millions of hard working people," he said.

    House Speaker Nancy Pelosi defended Rangel Friday, saying the committee found that Rangel "did not willfully break the rules."

    Rangel's case involved trips he made to conferences in Antigua and St. Martin in 2007 and 2008 with the Congressional Black Caucus. The committee concluded the trip violated House rules that forbid hidden financing by corporations.

    Why would anyone think the dems are going to hold Rep. Rangel to any kind of standard, they are dems for goodness sake. 

    Kids if you want to go into politics be a dem. its a great life and rules change as needed.

    I myself was going to go to work for President Obama but they did a background check on me and found I had paid all my taxes on time, that was it for me.
