While they're not trying to, uh, agree on a bailout plan for financial firms, two Democrats and two Republicans are investigating Representative Charles Rangel for the House Ethics Committee. The Post reports that Rangel has "crossed paths" with the four men, not surprising given how long he's served. And his relations with them range from Rangel contributing to one's campaign fund (that would be Gene Green, D-Texas) to someone who has wanted an investigation into the Harlem congressman for a while (Doc Hastings, R-Washington). And on Tuesday, the Washington Post said Rangel should stay put, as the ethics committee gets working, "If it's death by a thousand cuts, [then Rangel] has 994 to go."
