Despite His Tax Problems, Democrats Keep Rangel as Tax-Writing Chairman

Rangel’s troubles have snowballed since July, when The Washington Post reported that he used official congressional letterhead to solicit meetings with wealthy potential donors for a public service school that bears his name at the City College of New York.
Rangel’s latest troubles came when The New York Post published allegations that that he had failed to pay at least $10,000 in back taxes or report nearly $75,000 in income from a luxury beachfront property he owns in the Dominican Republic.
