    Rangel pays IRS, sees 'guerrilla war'

    "This Old New York Thief Escaped with ease, Anyone else would have been Penalized and Fined big time .
    Now he is declaring a guerrilla war because he was caught !"

    WASHINGTON (AP) - Rep. Charles Rangel wrote six checks for about $10,800 in back taxes, and then penned an open letter to New Yorkers Friday, saying he has done nothing dishonorable and is the target of a GOP "guerrilla war."

    Rangel, the dean of the New York congressional delegation, has faced a string of embarrassing revelations _ he didn't pay taxes on rental income for a beach house in the Dominican Republic; he used three rent-stabilized apartments in Harlem, including one for a campaign office; he used his congressional stationery to drum up private donations to a college center named after him.

    He ended up writing a number of checks to cover taxes due on his 2004, 2005, and 2006 returns, related to the unreported rental income, said his chief of staff, George Dalley.

    The federal government tab ended up being $4,803, according to Rangel's accountants, while he wrote checks totaling $6,022 to New York State. The state figure includes a small percentage owed to the New York City authorities.

    Penalties and interest were not included in those payments, Dalley said.

    "If the IRS chooses to impose them, of course he'll readily pay them," said Dalley.

    As he paid the taxman, Rangel also tried to assure constituents he did nothing to shame his office.

    "I've never violated the public trust, so I'm not worried," Rangel wrote in a letter, e-mailed by his campaign.

    A House ethics committee plans to investigate, and Republicans have called for the 19-term congressman to be removed from his powerful position as chairman of the tax-writing Ways and Means Committee. After private meetings with House Democratic leaders earlier this week, Rangel was able to keep the post.

    What a SHOCKER!:eek:
    Where are the calls for removal? Why no outrage from the MSM? What media bias?
    Disgusting DIM party.

    Do not ever say that the desire to "do good" by force is a good motive. Neither power-lust nor stupidity are good motives. (Are you listening Barry)?:mad:

    If Rangol were a republican - the press would be calling for his head.
    Stand up for what is right, even if you have to stand alone.

    Same w/ the ATF

    As an FFL they will pull your license for serious offenses such as, abreviating words, misspelling words, or not posting a poster warning about straw purchases

    Yet they have just lost hundreds of Laptops, dozens of firearms and yet they are still in business!

    The really sad part is that the people who vote him into office will keep voting him into office.
