Dubbed "Charlie's Angels," the three Democrats on the committee who received funds from Rangel within the last year are Reps. Ben Chandler (KY), G.K. Butterfield (NC) and Peter Welch (VT). However, only one has stepped forward with concerns over a potential conflict of interest. Rep. Welsh's spokesman stated, "In an abundance of caution, [Welch] has returned all campaign contributions to Rangel,"--a total of nearly $20,000.
Rangel says he's expecting for a quick ruling on the ethics charges being levied against him--a pretty confident expectation for this power-peddling Dem.
