Schlub of the week

Well, this was an easy one.

Our friend congressman Charlie Rangel took advantage of his station to a) get four rent regulated apartments (which any New Yorker who pays market rate rent resents), b) probably fudged the taxes on his vacation home in the Dominican Republic and c) used the congressional parking lot to store his classic Mercedes.

They towed the car this week.

I have to admit, I sort of like Charlie Rangel. The kinds of things he's being accused of are the sorts I'm sure all Congressmen are guilty of. That doesn't excuse it, but he's a schlub extraordinare for getting caught.
