I've said it here literally -- OK, figuratively -- a million times: Support your ideals, not people, because too many people will eventually let you down. Right now, is there any Republican causing more damage to the goal of a more just and a better America than Democrat Charlie Rangel. I think not:
A House investigative committee on Thursday charged New York Rep. Charles Rangel with multiple ethics violations, a blow to the former Ways and Means chairman and an election-year headache for Democrats.
He doesn't have to be a headache for anyone, anymore. The Harlem Democrat served his country admirably many years ago fighting in the Korean Conflict, earning a Bronze Star and a Purple Heart, and now he can serve Americans one final time...by resigning, immediately.
