Charlie Rangel: Symptom of a bigger problem

Star Parker has an outstanding article in Townhall entitled, "Charlie Rangel is a Symptom of a Bigger Problem." Among the observations Ms. Parker makes is
Earlier this year, the New York Times profiled the prodigious money raising prowess and dubious ethics of the Congressional Black Caucus Foundation. The Times editorialized, “Of all the money machines shaving ethical corners, few rival the Congressional Black Caucus…..the caucus spends far more on gala entertainments and golf outings than on the scholarships that billboard its charity drives.”
On behalf of my black granddaughter who is way too young to be outraged (but is absolutely adorable, by the way), I am outraged at a bunch of crooked politicians like Charlie Rangel who rode to power based largely on the color of their skin and then betrayed the very people they were elected to help!

Please take time to read the article.
