Nearly two years ago, the NY Post put a photograph of a dozing Rep. Charles Rangel in beach fashion on its cover—the picture was taken while Rangel was relaxing at his vacation villa in the Dominican Republic. Rangel earned rental income on it, but only "sporadically" reported it on his taxes. Now, the once powerful Congressman from Harlem has been hit with 13 House Ethics violations—including ones related to the villa—so it was a perfect opportunity to run the photo again.

The Post also offers a reminder of how it broke many of the stories related to Rangel's violations, as well as stories on how Rangel's seat is "scarred" from other scandal (Adam Clayton Powell) and that some Harlem residents just want Rangel to go. Capital New York, in examining the cover, writes, "Curiously, the Post wants the reader to know just how extensive the inside coverage is, opting to call out in a red snipe: 'SPECIAL REPORT: PAGES 4,5,6,7,8,9.' Not 4-9, but 4,5,6,7,8,9."

Rangel is reportedly hoping that a deal can still be made so he can avoid an embarrassing—for himself and Democrats—trial this fall. He's running for re-election this year, but has quite a few primary challengers.
