The 13 counts against Rangel

Here they are (the titles that is), as transcribed from the official version. I can’t grab text with Acrobat – it looks like the PDF was made from a copy of the document. Any transcription typos are mine.

  2. Conduct in Violation of Code of Ethics for Government Service, cl. 5
  3. Conduct in Violation of the House Gift Rule
  4. Conduct in Violation of Postal Service Laws and Franking Commission’s Regulations

Update: I should have added that the charges above only take up the last third of the document. The bulk of it has page after page of statements of fact grouped into three categories.

  1. Solicitation of Potential Donors to the Charles B. Rangel Center for Public Service at the City College of New York
  2. Financial Disclosure Statements and Amendments Filed in Calendar Year 2009 by or on behalf of Representative Charles B. Rangel
