Surprise! Charlie Rangel has not one, not two, but FOUR apartments in the same posh building in NYC.
People jump on Gramm like flies on you-know-what while we have an actual case of a government official engaging in shady money and living luxuriously off the taxpayer’s dime. I’ve never seen more decrepit, abandoned, condemned properties than I saw in Harlem, while Charlie Antoinette sits a few blocks away. Both situations are due to rent control, an outdated and economically-laughable policy. I’m sure that the most ethical Congress evah will be analyzing the situation…any day now…
