Charlie Rangel's Colleagues Are Returning His Money

Another Congressman Returns Rangel's 'Dirty Money' -- Five Congressman Have Now Given $60,000 To Charity -- Washington Examiner

Since November, the Examiner's "Dirty Money Watch" has been exclusively calling up members of Congress who accepted campaign cash from scandal-plagued Rep. Charles Rangel, D-N.Y., and asking whether they will return the money.

In the last week, and following multiple inquiries by the Examiner, three congressmen have donated $37,000 in campaign donations from Rangel to charity.

My Comment: When your friends are getting rid of your money, you are in trouble.
