A Quote (from Charlie Rangel) for the Day…
“The president wants dignity. Let’s have dignity in this House where the ethics committee means something and that none of you, if the newspapers say anything, will have to wait two years before you can say ‘no comment.’ … I don’t expect answers today. But at the end of the day, somebody, somebody has to do more than wish I go away.”
– Rep. Charles Rangel (D-NY) responding to those wishing that he resign because of ethics charges.
Charlie dared his critics to kick him out and asked that the ethics charges be expedited. The ethics trial is scheduled to start Sept. 13, a day before Rangel will face his district’s Democratic primary voters.
