your own business

rangel still facing complex ethics investigation, ap.

The investigation of Rep. Charles Rangel, D-N.Y., is looking into whether he:

-Violated House rules by using his official position to raise money for the Charles B. Rangel Center for Public Service at City College of New York.

-Had his committee consider legislation that would benefit donors to the center at the same time the congressman solicited donations or pledges.

-Preserved a tax shelter for an oil drilling company, Nabors Industries, which has a chief executive who donated money to the center while Rangel's committee considered the loophole legislation.

-Used four rent-controlled apartment units in New York City, when the city's rent stabilization program is supposed to apply to one's primary residence. This raises the question of how all the units could be primary residences.

-Disclosed information on the financing of his ownership interest in a guest unit within the Punta Cana Yacht Club in Punta Cana, Dominican Republic.

-Intentionally failed to report — when required — hundreds of thousands of dollars or more in assets. The amended disclosure reports added a credit union IRA, mutual fund accounts and stock.

hey, now, boys! why don't you mind your goddamn business?
