The ongoing ethics investigation of local Congressman Charles Rangel appears to be going nowhere in a hurry. Today's Post talks to the head of an ethics watchdog group who says, "Four months after the investigations started, there is no investigative subcommittee, no public hearings, and no sign of any progress whatsoever." House Speaker Nancy Pelosi had expected members of the Committee on Standards of Official Conduct investigating by the end of the session which ended earlier this month. But since that did not happen, the process will only be delayed further now that three of the four members looking into were rotated off with a new session of Congress in place. The Post sounds eager to see the probe take place in swift fashion, possibly because they've played no small role in prompting the investigation to begin with.
