Sorry, Charlie

"U.S. Rep. Charles Rangel says he doesn't want "any special breaks" when it comes to charges that he violated ethics rules."

Then why is he at this very moment desperately attempting to "negotiate" some sort of deal with the House leadership that would presumably sweep the many serious criminal accusations levied against him under the tired old rug of  "settled quietly behind closed doors"?

No dice and no deals.  Lay it all out on the table for everyone to see just how criminally corrupt ol' Charlie's been lo these many years.

"The most ethical Congress in history", Ms. Pelosi?  "Transparency", Mr. President?  We're not seeing a whole lot of either in this matter.  And where's the IRS in all of this, by the way?  Any peasant accused of even a small portion of the tax shenanigans Rangel's accused of pulling would be in heap big trouble with that thuggish agency right about now.  Why isn't he?
