Rangel Tries to Avoid Reporter's Questions on Ethics Problems; NY Sources Say Rangel May Resign so Paterson can Run - Video 10/6/09
Here is video from CBS2 in New York reporting on a move by House Republicans to remove Democrat Rep. Charles Rangel as Chairman of the powerful House Ways and Means Committee. Rangel has been plagued with ethics violations, even though he is the head of the top tax-writing body in the Congress.
The video also shows Rangel trying to avoid questions by a CBS 2 reporter. She had to literally chase him down the street because he had his car moved to a different location to avoid her. He then tried to head off questions about his ethics problems by saying he hoped no one would ask questions not related to the event he was attending.
Finally, the report ends with bizarre news that some New York Democrats have disclosed that efforts are being made to get Rangel to resign from Congress so that embattled New York Gov. David Paterson can leave the governorship and run for Rangel's seat in Congress!
