A Rangel Afterthought

Thursday, November 18, 2010
According to Politico:

As Rep. Charles Rangel pleaded for "a drop of fairness and mercy," the ethics committee's top lawyer has recommended a censure of the New York lawmaker, one of the harshest punishments that the House can deliver short of expulsion.

Thus, we couldn't help but wonder.

During Congressman Rangel's multiple visits with Cuban dictator Fidel Castro -- both in Havana and New York -- did he ever plead for "a drop of fairness and mercy" for the millions of innocent Cubans beaten, imprisoned, tortured and/or executed?

They definitely needed his help. But instead, he'd simply turn a blind-eye towards Castro's brutality.

One thing is for sure, the Ethics Committee will be much kinder.
