Goodbye Charlie Rangel: Poster Child Call for Term Limits

Posted by Steve Markowitz on March 3, 2010

The end has begun for good old Charlie Rangel, Democrat Congressman from New York.  The New York Times reported that Rangel announced he would temporarily step down as Chairman of the House Ways and Means Committee, link posted below.  How noble of Charlie.  First he got caught with his hands in the cookie jar; then he tried to have his cronies in the Congress run interference for him; and finally after all avenues of delay have been exhausted, and a great deal of taxpayer money, Charlie admits the error of his ways.

This Blog discussed Rangel’s ethics violations on September 4, 2009 and February 25, 2010postings (links below).  Charlie is just an example of the problems in Washington in both parties, where elitist professional politicians become leaches off the people who elect them.  Only short term limits can address this tragedy, period.
