House denies bid to demote Rangel

September 19, 2008|From Times Wire Reports

The House rejected a Republican-led bid to force Rep. Charles B. Rangel (D-N.Y.) to give up his chairmanship of the tax-writing Ways and Means Committee while the ethics committee reviews his financial and tax records. The proposal failed, 226-176.

Issues include Rangel's failure to report $75,000 in rental income and his use of a rent-controlled apartment as a campaign office.

Rangel, 78, denies intentional wrongdoing.
