2008_08_rangelpo2.jpgAfter the NY Post's cover story wondering about rental income from Representative Charles Rangel's Dominican Republic villa, a GOP group weighs in. Rangel's villa, which sits on a resort, has been rented out to hotel guests, but he hasn't reported rental income in the past two years (his chief of staff suggested Rangel may be a shareholder at the resort and put money back into the resort--but Rangel's tax returns don't mention that). The National Republican Congressional Committee now tells the Post, "Charlie Rangel is a fan of authoring massive tax hikes just as long as he doesn't have to pay them." And Representative Peter King (R-Nassau County) said, "Did he report the rental income or not? If he didn't, he'll have to explain why. I'm sure it will be investigated."
