Nice Digs If You Can Get Them

Charlie Rangel [1]The New York Times [2]reports that rank corruption has its priviledges:

While aggressive evictions are reducing the number of rent-stabilized apartments in New York, Representative Charles B. Rangel is enjoying four of them, including three adjacent units on the 16th floor overlooking Upper Manhattan in a building owned by one of New York’s premier real estate developers.Mr. Rangel, the powerful Democrat who is chairman of the House Ways and Means Committee, uses his fourth apartment, six floors below, as a campaign office, despite state and city regulations that require rent-stabilized apartments to be used as a primary residence.

Charlie is getting four apartments at below market prices,  and forcing three families to live on the street.

JammieWearingFool [3], makes a humble suggestion:

It would be a noble gesture of the hypocrite to give up three of his posh pads so some needy families could find shelter.

Nah. It’ll never happen, because he doesn’t give a rat’s ass about anyone but himself

And just think, Mrs. Pelosi had promised to drain the swamp.
