Speaker Nancy Pelosi (D-Calif.) will let Rep. Charles Rangel (D-N.Y.) keep his chairmanship despite his failing to report hundreds of thousands of dollars in assets on federal disclosure forms, according to Democratic aides.”

Figures. And to paraphrase key parts of the article.

“First, she does not want to be seen as interfering with the ethics committee probe by stepping in before it reaches a conclusion.” Translation: Crooks leave crooks alone until it is time to RUN.

“In addition, the Speaker does not want to set the precedent of penalizing a colleague because of transgressions alleged in media reports.” Translation: If the state run media lets him get away with it, it DID NOT HAPPEN.

““She is concerned about setting a bad precedent.” Translation: She is concerned about covering her OWN REAR end.

“Third, there is not an obvious successor on the powerful Ways and Means Committee, which has jurisdiction over all tax issues. Translation: None of ranking democrats are minority enough, muslim enough, Marxist enough, Pro-Health care enough or CROOKED ENOUGH to kowtow to Nancy’s/Obama’s liberal agenda.

Update Sept.3: Via “Charlie Rangel (D, NY) gave money to Democrats on Ethics Committee. Three of them. Need I add that Charlie Rangel is currently under investigation by that committee?

Charlie’s “angels” on the committee include Congressmen Ben Chandler of Kentucky, G.K. Butterfield of North Carolina and Peter Welch of Vermont. All have received donations from Rangel.

Two of them – Chandler (KY-06, R+9*) & Butterfield (NC-01, D+9) – are apparently keeping it, too. Considering that Rep. Rangel has given money to 119 Congressmen since the ethics probe began last year, you could almost not blame them”

No wonder he acts so above the law. Cronyism at work!
