Weiner, a seven-term Democrat, has acknowledged sending sexually explicit messages over the Internet to a half-dozen women over the past three years and then lying about it in interviews he asked for on national media. See Rep. Weiner Twitters In His Boxers on this blog.
Then comes Charlie Rangel, a roaring voice of ethics and moral relativism.
Rangel suggested that other members of Congress had done things more immoral than Weiner. Rangel said Weiner "wasn't going with prostitutes. He wasn't going out with little boys." Is Charlie referring to Barney Frank, per chance? As Time Magazine reported A Skeleton in Barney's Closet in Sept of 1989. Or possibly Charlie remembers his own standard of excellence as reported by CBS News Charlie Rangel: List of Charges.
Is anyone else tired of this? As the slow march toward ousting Weiner progresses, we can pause and ask ourselves, how come both Rangel and Frank are still in congress?
