The Ghost of Snapped Shot

Or, welcome to my low-maintenance heck.

With Representatives Like These

Congressman Charlie Rangel (D-NY) seems to be a bit more equal than you are:

According to a public records database and interviews with neighbors, he has lived in the building since the early 1970s, but it is not clear when he amassed the four units.

Mr. Rangel, 78, declined to answer questions during a telephone interview, saying that his housing was a private matter that did not affect his representation of his constituents.

“Why should I help you embarrass me?” he said, before abruptly hanging up.

Leave it up to Democratic voters, who seem to have an endless amount of tolerance for corruption, to completely ignore the fact that a wealthy congressman is squatting in four apartments that are intended to be reserved for the poor. For over 20 years.

Be sure to hop over to A Blog For All for some juicy background on why this is so funny.

He hasn't been doing this more than 20 years, he's been doing this for more than 30.
