Charlie Rangel Faces Ethics Charges

 Charlie Rangel, the famous New York Congressman long suspected of illegal corruption, has finally been charged with ethics violations regarding unknown instances.

Rangel, a New York Democrat, said he looks forward to the trial. He said Thursday that he's been asking for the opportunity to explain himself to his constituents for two years.

Rangel was chairman of the House Ways and Means Committee until he stepped down in March following criticism from the ethics committee regarding a separate case.

Info is sketchy so far, but it looks like Rangel must have done pretty bad for a Democratic-controlled panel to accuse him of such things.

I pray for all past and current corruption to be exposed, prosecuted, convicted, and sentenced.

And I pray for future corruption to be prevented.
