Andre Carson Hanging On To His Rangel Money
While U.S. Rep. Brad Ellsworth (D-IN) and U.S. Rep. Joe Donnelly gave up donations they received from U.S. Rep. Charlie Rangel (D-NY), the former powerful chairman of the House Ways & Means Committee, by returning or donating the contributions to charities, U.S. Rep. Andre Carson is hanging on to his Rangel money. Carson has received $10,000 in contributions from Rangel, who is facing a number of ethics charges brought against him by the House Ethics Committee involving self-dealing and misuse of his congressional office. Will the local news media ask Carson if he's going to give up his Rangel money?
