National Briefing / WASHINGTON, D.C.

Rangel remains chairman of panel

September 16, 2008|From Times wire reports

Rep. Charles B. Rangel (D-N.Y.) attended a private meeting with fellow Democrats on the House Ways and Means Committee but remains chairman of the tax-writing panel, despite questions about his personal finances and unpaid taxes on a beach house.

Republicans have called for Rangel, 78, to be removed from his chairmanship over unreported income and unpaid taxes on his beach house in the Dominican Republic.

House Speaker Nancy Pelosi has resisted those demands. The issue is expected to come up again today at a meeting of Democratic leaders.
