According to Charlie Rangel, it’s Republicans’ fault you know about his ethics violations. Despite being the one who committed the acts and abused the elected office, he wants to shift the blame to his political opponents… and accuse them of playing politics in this matter.
Rep. Charles Rangel told Harlem leaders Saturday he signed a plea deal on ethics charges but that the GOP pushed for a trial.
“He said he had signed an agreement. He was ready to go but I guess politics came into play,” said Assemblyman Keith Wright (D-Manhattan), one of about 50 leaders gathered for a Harlem district meeting Saturday.
Another attendee said Rangel implied, “It was Republicans that didn’t want an agreement” and that he signed a deal before the ethics committee released its report last month.
You know, Charlie, the easiest way to avoid this public embarrassment and the “political maneuvering of Republicans” is to… STOP ABUSING YOUR ELECTED POSITION FOR IMPROPER PERSONAL GAIN.
I hope the trial is messy, painful and strips you of any future taxpayer money forever. Enjoy retirement, Jackass.
