There Is Nothing Dignified About Charles Rangel

Ethically-bankrupt Representative Charles Rangel is lamenting the situation he finds himself in.  He didn’t cause it, mind you.  It just happened. 

And dignity demands that he stay in Congress for at least one more term:

Rangel even responded to a particularly high-ranking critic, refusing President Obama’s month-old request that he “end his career with dignity” at the end of his current term.

“Frankly, he has not been around long enough to determine what my dignity is,” Rangel said of the baby-boomer Obama.

This has nothing to do with dignity. Rangel has nothing to do with dignity.  He is all about ego and corruption.

Rangel is one of those politicians who appropriates others’ money, spends it on things they may or may not want, makes sure that some of the money ends up in the pockets of his cronies, names the project after himself, and then expects us to thank him for his service.  There is nothing dignified about it.
