House Kills Resolution to Oust Rangel From Chair of Tax-Writing Committee – Political News – FOXNews.com

Party line vote with a few exceptions.  What a shock.

Pay your taxes or step down — that’s the message House Republicans are sending to Rep. Charles Rangel, D-N.Y., chairman of the tax-writing Ways and Means Committee and subject of a major ethics probe into alleged tax evasion and other violations.

House Democrats voted to strike down a resolution Wednesday to remove Rangel from his chairmanship following the reading of a long and stinging list of his alleged wrongdoing.

The resolution stemmed from a major ethics probe into Rangel’s alleged failure to pay his taxes and disclose income on multiple properties — as much as $1.3 million.
