Breaking News: Charlie Rangel Stepping Down as Chairman of the House Ways and Means Committee
The last guy to realize Charlie Rangel is too corrupt to serve as Chairman of the House Ways and Means Committee just found out. Word is Rangel will announce tonight that he has agreed to step down as chair of the powerful committee that writes tax laws. Those would be the tax laws that Charlie hasn't bothered to follow.
UPDATE: The deranged Rep. Pete Stark (D-CA) has assumed temporary chairmanship of the committee. Stark is one of the most despicable miscreants in a congress that isn't held in very high esteem. Investors Business Daily has a run down of his low lights. The citizens of his district should be ashamed for continually reelecting him, but sadly they are incapable of shame.
UPDATE 2: Now, Stark is stepping down from the temporary chairmanship of the Ways and Means Committee because he also has difficulty following and adhering to the tax laws they write. Rep. Sander Levin of Michigan will now take the gavel. No word on his taxes (yet).
If there was any honesty in DC, the difficulty in finding any Democrat who does not have tax problems would lead to a call to simplify the ridiculous tax code.
