To bad a slow moving government hasn't come up with enough to charge Obama and Dodd for their shady deals with the convicted Tony Retzko. And Rangel, for trying to evade taxes on his off shore properties. Innocently overlooked, Rangel said.
The problem is that the "voters" often vote them back to office as they did reelect the corrupt (he was found guilty and sentenced to a short term) Mayor of Washington, D.C.
