Okay, Nan, It's On You
Yesterday, the New York Times admirably called for Democratic Congressional leadership to forcibly remove the ethically defunct Charles Rangel (D-NY) from his hugely influential Ways and Means Committee chairmanship, assuming Rep. Rangel is unwilling to step aside on his own.
He is unwilling.
Sources told NY1 this afternoon that Congressman Charles Rangel will not step down as chairman of the powerful House Ways and Means committee.
Republicans have called for Rangel to be removed from his post as the head of the committee that writes the nation's tax laws as he deals with his own financial troubles, but NY1 has been told by sources close to Rangel that the Manhattan congressman has never considered stepping down from his leadership post because no member of the Democratic House leadership asked him to.
Rangel met with House Speaker Nancy Pelosi yesterday.
