Yesterday, Representative Charles Rangel announced that he and other lawmakers, per the NY Post, "persuaded landlords in four of six 'at-risk' buildings not to opt out of Section 8 government-subsidy contracts." Which meant Rangel--of the four (now three) rent-stabilized apartments--had an opportunity to be photographed with supporters holding up signs like "Champion of preservation" and for City Council member Inez Dickens to tell him, "You have our back, and now we are here for you." Not everyone was happy with Rangel--one person told the NY Times, Rangel "wants we all to think that he’s there for the people, but deep down inside, he doesn’t care.”
