The Latest On Congressman Charlie Rangel

 

 

Washington D.C. – Congresswoman Barbara Lee (D-CA), Chairwoman of the Congressional Black Caucus, released the following statement this morning on Chairman Charles B. Rangel:

 

“We regret that Chairman Charles Rangel is taking a temporary leave of absence during this very critical time in our efforts to turn the economy around. He has been an effective chairman and has shown tremendous leadership on many issues and dedicated service to his constituents.

 

“We recognize that Chairman Rangel did not want this matter to be distractions from our efforts to create jobs and revitalize our economy. However, we remain concerned about the precedent this sets for the House of Representatives that the political climate is such that a member would feel the need to step aside, even temporarily, during an ongoing proceeding.

 

“We look forward to the conclusion of the investigation and to him resuming his position as chairman of the House Committee on Ways and Means.”
