The Washington Examiner staff has compelled three different Democratic Members of Congress to make charitable donations out of the $26,000 in campaign contributions given to them by Rep. Charlie Rangel.

On Monday, Rep. Bill Foster, D-Ill., announced that he is giving $14,000 he received from Rangel to an Illinois food bank. Foster's announcement came after The Examiner's query earlier in the day.

Also on Monday, Rep. Jerry McNerney, D-Calif., told The Examiner that he is giving $10,000 he received from Rangel to charity.

There are over a dozen other legislators who have kept the cash from Rangel, according to The Examiner's count. Check them all out here.
