2008_09_rangelpc2.jpgThe Post suggests that Representative Charles Rangel's income may now be above $200,000, which is more than the $175,000-ceiling to qualify for rent-stabilized apartments. Rangel up until very recently occupied four rent-stabilized units at Lenox Terrace, three for living and one as an office (he gave up the office after the disclosure). Previously, Rangel claimed his income was around $175,000, but there are recent revelations about unreported income from a vacation villa, unreported property sales, and a free parking space for an old car. Of course, the Post points out his landlord doen't have to deregulate his apartments. But the building has tried to kick out rent-stabilized tenants for things like their children sending in rent checks for them (because the tenant was going blind).
