It's about time that Rep. Nancy Pelosi and House Democrats took action against the reprehensible Rep. Charles Rangel (D-NY), but one wonders when exactly the investigation will be completed.
They've opened an inquiry and have created a subcommittee to investigate Rangel's actions, including the use of House stationary to solicit contributions to a library to be named in Rangel's honor.
One stunning part of the determination is that the committee decided to investigate his use of congressional stationery in three separate years to seek donors for a public policy institute in his name at City College.So, who will be on this subcommittee? These members:
The committee will also investigate Rangel's use of four rent-stabilized apartments leased in the Lenox Terrace apartment complex in Harlem, the financing of the beachfront villa leased in the Dominican Republic, and his questionable storage of a late-model Mercedes Benz in the house garage.
The subcommittee will be led by Reps. Gene Green, D-Texas, the acting chairman of the ethics committee, and Rep. Doc Hastings, R-Wash., its ranking Republican member. Sitting on the panel will be Reps. Robert "Bobby" Scott, D-Va., and Jo Bonner, R-Ala.There's plenty there. Have at it.
