Charles Rangel, the epitome of the Public Servant, after being confronted with his own tax cheats.
Even though it didn’t go anywhere, the ‘Rangel Rule‘ was introduced in Congress a while back. It’s a shame more people didn’t hear about it.
The legislation calls for the creation of what he calls the, “Rangel Rule,” — drawing attention to the recent legal issues of House Ways and Means Committee Chairman Charlie Rangel, D-N.Y., enabling citizens who fail to pay taxes on time to do so later with no additional fees.
Rangel, who writes the country’s tax policies, acknowledged last fall that he failed to pay thousands in real estate taxes for rental income he earned from a property in the Dominican Republic.
