Attention And Accountability (Cont.)

I’ve posted on several occasions about the ethical issues surrounding Democratic Representative Charles Rangel, the former head of the House Ways and Means Committee — see here, here, and here.  The House Ethics Committee has now announced that Rangel will be tried on ethics charges before the Committee.  The bipartisan nature of the finding of “substantial reason to believe” that Rangel has violated ethics rules suggests that he has reason to be concerned.

I am glad to see that the Ethics Committee is showing that the ethics rules have some teeth.  Let’s hope the trial actually goes forward and sheds some light on the unseemly practices that seem to be all-too-common in Congress.
