Charles Rangel Subject of Ethics Investigation

Written by

Bwog does not normally do non-Columbia political news, but we thought this was of enough local interest to mention. Congressman Charles Rangel, who represents part of Harlem and some Columbia students, is being investigated by the House of Representatives “Committee on Standards of Official Conduct”.

Among other allegations, Rangel is being investigated for the acceptance of “several rent-stabilized apartments from a Manhattan developer” and not paying back taxes on income from a Puerto Rican villa. Also, Rangel has apparently already paid back $10,000 in back taxes, “explaining that the mistakes in his taxes were inadvertent oversights.” We wish we could miss $10,000 in our taxes…

For what it’s worth, the Washington Post wants him to stay.
