Charlie Rangel, Tribune of the People, Back in the News

Since sunshine has forced him to give up his rent controlled office. Not exactly a big deal, since he still has several more to use.

It’s nice that this stalwart public servant is doing his part to serve himself at other’s expense.

Just as a follow up note on rent control: Mr. Rangel’s a congressman. He has sufficient income to pay market rents. Why is he taking up any rent controlled space at all?

Answer: because he can.
