Somebody Is Out To Get Charlie Rangel

Somebody is out to get powerful Ways and Means Committee chairman, Congressman Charlie Rangel.

In July, the New York Times reported on Rangel's four rent controlled apartments:

While aggressive evictions are reducing the number of rent-stabilized apartments in New York, Representative Charles B. Rangel is enjoying four of them, including three adjacent units on the 16th floor overlooking Upper Manhattan in a building owned by one of New York’s premier real estate developers.

Today's New York Post reports on Rangel's "beachfront villa in a sun-drenched Dominican Republic resort.":

While the villa was rented to paying guests for the past two years, for instance, Rangel reported no income from it in 2006 and 2007, The Post has learned. As a congressman, failure to fully list all income and investments can result in civil penalties or criminal charges.
Reports like this don't come out by accident. Somebody that is very powerful is after Rangel.
