Is Charlie Rangel In Trouble?

Perhaps; when even the New York Times editorial board believes that he ought to stand aside from his Ways and Means Chairmanship for at least a period of time while his tax history is being investigated, the Code Red ought to be issued in Rangel’s office to signal impending political danger.

Of course, it should be noted that Nancy Pelosi continues to protect Rangel in a manner that would outrage her if a Republican Speaker protected a Republican Chairman of the House Ways and Means Committee who was similarly ethically situated as Rangel is.
