Congressman ‘Reprimanded’

If I owned property and failed to claim rent collected on my taxes, or if I created a non-profit organization and then accepted $600,000 in charitable donations and again failed to disclose this transaction to the government, not only would I be fined heavily, but likely also imprisoned, my property seized, and my character lambasted in the media. But, I would probably be able to keep my House seat, at least I would If I were Charlie Rangel, who has been charged with significant violations of the financial and tax disclosure rules, and will be given a public spanking. I’m certainly glad everyone in America is held to the same high standards of financial disclosure and responsibility.
