Congressman Charles Rangel

Posted by Al Hathaway Friday, July 30, 2010

Congressman Charles Rangel was apart of the epic shaping African American contingency that rose to power during the early 1970's. He joined the late Congressman Parren J. Mitchell. Together with an early band of African American Congress members formed the Congressional Black Caucus. Dr. Augustus Adair, a member of Union Baptist Church, became its first Executive Secretary. Congressman Rangel was elected from a historic New York congressional district, previously led by Congressman Rev. Adam Clayton Powell, Jr. Congressman Rangel was a worthy heir. Throughout the years, Congressman Rangel accrued political power and seniority. They are valuable commodities on Capital Hill. He was an effective spokesperson for issues and causes that affected the common people of America. Congressman Rangel is now being faced with his most difficult challenge, defending himself against allegations of ethics violations. There is street language that says, "I don't want to go out like that." This distinguished Congressman Charles Rangel shouldn't have to go out like that under a cloud of suspicion and cruel allegations. At 80 years of age, it is time for Congressman Charles Rangel to past the torch and retire.
