Ethics Panel Launches Rangel Probe
The subcommittee plans to investigate four issues: 1) Rangel's use of official letterhead to set up meetings with potential donors to an educational center bearing his name; 2) His use of four rent-stabilized apartments in New York City; 3) His financing of a Dominican Republic villa and his alleged failure to properly account for the property on his financial disclosure forms; and 4) His storage of a personal car in a House garage.
Republicans have called for Rangel to step down from his chairmanship of the Ways and Means Committee, but he has declined to do so and denied doing anything "morally wrong" in any of these cases. It is not clear whether the ethics panel can reach any conclusion in the case before the end of the 110th Congress.
