Ethics panel accuses Rangel of 13 violations
Question of the Day
WASHINGTON (AP) — A House investigatory panel is alleging 13 violations of congressional ethics and federal law statutes by Rep. Charles B. Rangel, New York Democrat.
The charges came despite efforts by Mr. Rangel’s attorneys to negotiate a last-minute deal.
They include allegations that Mr. Rangel failed to report rental income on vacation property in the Dominican Republic and over the course of nearly a decade failed to report more than $600,000 on his financial disclosure statements.
Rep. Michael McCaul, Texas Republican, who is the top GOP member on a panel that will try Mr. Rangel, said that the veteran Democrat had been “given the opportunity to negotiate a settlement during the investigation phase.”
However, he said, that phase is now over. “We are now in the trial phase,” he said.
