As a New Yorker (now living in Florida - where eles?), Charles Rangel was a man I was proud to have represent my state in congress. But, like another Washington insider that I once respected, John McCain, I no longer have any faith in Rangel. The facts of the counts levied against him are spelled out below. As I hope that Charley does the honorable thing (resign), I have only one thing left to say and that is to quote an old teacher of mine: "Chuck you Farley!"
