now facing 13 separate ethics violations charges from a bipartisan panel. However, the AP views this very serious situation purely through partisan lenses:
If Rangel is indeed found guilty on these charges, isn't this a victory for both Republicans and the Democrats' "most ethical" Congress?Republicans wanted an election-season ethics case against Democratic powerhouse Rep. Charles Rangel of New York. And now, it looks like they have one.
If nothing else, I'd certainly call weeding out bad apples like Charlie Rangel from the bunch a victory for the American people. But for whatever reason, this idea is lost on the AP who seem to only feel bad that Rangel wasn't able to weasel his way out of this situation. Nice.
