Rangel accused of misusing funds on his defense in previous ethics investigation - NYPOST.com
The sad thing is that Rangel came in as the honest new face after the scandals of Adam Clayton Powell.
As for his claim that there is "no corruption," just why were those corporation lobbyists giving money to the school he was soliciting for in his office? They expected a quid pro quo from the Congressman. What was the benefit to Rangel? He benefited from the publicity and increased sense of dependency by his constituents. He gained more power and more votes. That is a reward as much as cash is. It is a reward that is worth cash.
