Rangeling up the cash – Rangel forget to report $1.3 million of income

When I find money, it usually is a matter of a couple bucks in a pair of jeans, or maybe a fistful of change in the sofa cushions…  small amounts are easy to overlook.  I’m certain this is fairly normal for most Americans.

So… could do you think you “forget” a million dollar house?

WASHINGTON — Rep. Charles Rangel failed to report as much as $1.3 million in outside income — including up to $1 million for a Harlem building sale — on financial-disclosure forms he filed between 2002 and 2006, according to newly amended records.

The documents also show the embattled chairman of the Ways and Means Committee — who is being probed by the House Ethics Committee — failed to reveal a staggering $3 million in various business transactions over the same period.

Now, this sort of makes the whole “Dominican estate” rent issue look like, well, pocket change.  In the words of Mel Brooks, “it’s good to be the King.”

Now, what do you imagine would be the penalty, for a mere mortal, for this sort of under-reporting of income? ”

Charlie, your office called… you have some more ‘splaining to do.

    Didn't you know?  This is a tribute to Ted Kennedy's infamous "don't you know who I am" attitude!


    I am sure that the Democrat controlled "ethics" committees will be all over this…..

    Do I hear another "honest mistake" being the rule instead of the exception????  Seems there are a different set of rules for our elite government.   Anyone else would likely be hit with charges of tax evasion, or um, let's see … lying to government officials, or oh yeah, holding a sign with a picture on it.  Unbelievable!
