Rangel may have more bad days to come


The title of his autobiography is And I Haven’t Had A Bad Day Since, but Rep. Charlie Rangel may still have more bad days to come, even after receiving a formal censure from his colleagues in the House of Representatives.

Politico is reporting that the Federal Election Commission (FEC) is investigating Rangel’s use of political action committee (PAC) funds to pay for his legal fees during the House Ethics Committee investigation that led to his censure.

Campaign finance disclosures filed with the FEC show that Rangel used approximately $400,000 in funds from his PAC to pay legal fees. The use of PAC funds for personal uses is in violation of federal campaign finance laws.
