      Charlie Rangel (D-NY), the head of Congress’ Ways and Means Committee - stood up yesterday and declared that he will not step down, even though his is accused of 13 ethics charges.

      He has several rent controlled apartments in NY (more than 1 is illegal for anyone) and has not paid his taxes in years... oops!

      This has been public information for years. I don’t understand the timing, but I’m thinking it has to do with the elections in the fall.

      Nancy Pelosi promised to “drain the swamp” when she came to power in the House. She clearly had the opportunity to correct this then and she dropped the ball.

      My gut is that this will be the first of many an incumbant to fall.  

      So, in answer to the question, yes, he should step down! He should have long ago!!

      Next up, Maxine Waters (D-CA).

      (BTW I spelled his name wrong in the title, it’s Rangel)
