Group Calls For Rangel To Resign

WASHINGTON – In response to the House Ethics Committee’s actions regarding Rep. Charles Rangel (D-NY), CREW Executive Director Melanie Sloan stated:

“Today’s action demonstrates that the notoriously lax Ethics Committee has found substantial reason to believe that Rep. Rangel has violated federal law, House rules, or both. Now the question is whether Rep. Rangel will resign or endure a public trial that promises to be filled with detailed and undoubtedly embarrassing revelations of wrongdoing. Rep. Rangel has toughed it out as long as he could, the time clearly has come for him to resign. He can no longer effectively represent the citizens of New York.”
