Testy Rangel Disparages MSNBC After 'Dumb' Ethics Questions

Printer-friendlyPrinter-friendlyEmail to friendEmail to friend

After being charged with violations of House Rules by the House Ethics Committee today, Rep. Charles Rangel (D-NY) got downright testy with MSNBC reporter Luke Russert when asked if he was going to keep his job. Rangel asked him who he was with and then disparaged the network by saying "it just shows what happened to a channel that did have some respect."

Because we exposed it, we were happy to see Russert also ask Rangel why he failed to report taxable income from rent on his Dominican Republic house.
