This Made Me Laugh This Morning...

Charles Rangel is a powerful member of the U.S. House of Representatives from New York City.

He is currently in hot water for using House stationery to solicit corporate donations for the Charles B. Rangel Center for Public Service at the City College of New York. Rangel has also drawn criticism for obtaining a $1.9 million earmark to help start the center. (He needs $30 million altogether, so open up your checkbooks...)

Rangel's reaction? (This is the part that had me chuckling on the Metro...)

"If it was an ethical problem, I wouldn't do it."

Well, that clears it up, doesn't it?!

And one wonders why Congress's approval rating is 23 percent (lower than President Bush's!)...
