Rangel Drags War Record Into Ethics Case

12.02.10 Bucky Turco

With the House getting ready to rule on how much of a slap on the wrist Charlie Rangel will get for his string of ethics violations, he spammed 25,000 supporters with an email, reminding them how honorable he was, 60 years ago, as a soldier, in Korea, when he was “wounded.”

The congressman also urged his constituency to call the “Capitol switchboard” and tell members to basically not punish him at all. Ha. How about encouraging people to call 202-224-3121 and ask that he be crucified instead?
