Charles B. Rangel. Charlie was on trial in House for several alleged ethics violations. From The Hill.com: "The 13 counts stem from several House ethics violations, including improperly using his office to solicit donations for a school of public policy in his name at the City College of New York, using a residential apartment in Harlem for his campaign office, failing to report more than $600,000 on his financial disclosure report and failing to pay taxes on rental income from a villa he owns in the Dominican Republic. Now you can scrub the word "ethics". Rangel was found guilty of those ethics charges just a little while ago. He awaits word of sentencing from the full ethics panel. He's a Democrat and an 80 year old walking pus pocket and the Democrats are still the Majority party (for now) in the House, so I don't expect much in the way of severe punishment. Maybe I am wrong about that, because Rangel has already turned down a "plea deal" that would have invoked some minor punishment on him. And then yesterday, Rangel plead with the adjudicatory subcommittee to delay his trial until he could get new lawyers ( he fired his previous counsel) and raise some funds to pay them. The panel said, 'Kiss my ass, Chuck" and today found him guilty.
Chuck, you've had 40 years of enriching yourself at the expense of the taxpayers of this country without doing a helluva lot for those dumb fucks that continually voted for you. Now, I hope you can live off the taxpayer one more time - as a guest of a Federal Prison near you. I hope those pussies who convicted you will have the balls to punish you accordingly. And by accordingly, I mean with the same prejudice as any ordinary American citizen would have been judged. Fuck your "service" to this country because you fucked us God knows how many times over the last 40 years. For all the vile things you have said about people who disagree with you over the years, maybe they can act as "character witnesses" for you. Put George W. Bush on the stand first. Charlie, you are a disgrace to this country as a whole, to the dipshits of your District in particular and to the Elected Body you were privileged to be part of.
You'd better have Come-to-Jesus meeting with your spiritual guide, Charlie. God will forgive you if your are sincere, but my name is Toby not God, and I am nowhere near as forgiving as He is. For your sake, you'd better hope that there are some forgiving souls on the committee that will decide your fate, Charlie. As for me, I simply say, " Fuck you. Have a nice day."
