Clay Accuses Ethics Committee Of Double Standard in Rangel Scandal

March 5th, 2010 by mopns · No Comments

Former House Ways & Means Committee Chairman Charlie Rangel relaxing on the beach during his illegally sponsored corporate trip to the Caribbean.

Instead of having some guts like President Obama and fellow Black Caucus member Artur Davis of Alabama, Congressman Clay plays the much over used race card when commenting on the ethics troubles of the former chairman:

“The rulings that came out last week gave me great pause. You had some members treated one way, and another member like Mr. Rangel treated another way.” Read more…

WTF!!! Mr. Rangel is also being investigated by the ethics commitee for having four rent subsidized apartments in Harlem, using House stationary to solicit funds for a foundation in his name, not disclosing rental income from his villa, and for not disclosing a half a million dollars in assets. We can’t wait for the Congressman’s response once these investigations are completed.
