Charlie Rangel, the long-serving Democrat from NYC, has been embattled for quite some time now, first over some rent-controlled homes he owns in the city, and now for various ethical questions, including hand-outs to his son. He is also Chairman of the powerful Ways and Means committee.

Just as with Dingel over in Commerce, this is another old Democrat I'd love to see booted. I've seen Rangel on Meet the Press more times than I can count and I've never been impressed, or for that matter, thought him competent enough to be a Congressman.
