Ethically-Challenged Tax Cheat to Be Immortalized on Capitol Hill

Today a portrait of the odious Charles Rangel is to be unveiled at the Capitol.

This should be the portrait he's remembered for.
He may have been censured by his House colleagues, but Rep. Charles Rangel (D-N.Y.) will have his visage permanently displayed on Capitol Hill.

The House Ways and Means Committee, which Rangel chaired until he lost his gavel following accusations of ethics violations, is hosting a ceremony and reception Thursday to unveil Rangel’s official portrait in Longworth House Office Building.

House leaders including Speaker John Boehner, Minority Leader Nancy Pelosi and Minority Whip Steny Hoyer will speak at the ceremony. Two New York senators, Democrats Kirsten Gillibrand and Chuck Schumer, will also give remarks.
I understand it's likely a formality, but shouldn't Speaker Boehner have found somewhere else to be during this sham?

Yet another example of the inept GOP leadership "going along to get along"...just like when they past the onmi-bus spending bill THAT INCREASES SPENDING FOR THIS YEAR.  WTF!!!!!

The GOP leadership in the Washington DC has sold out their principles to get along with the Democrats.  We were promised real spending cuts before the last election, and we get spending increases instead.  At least the damn Democrats make no secret that they want to bankrupt America.  The GOP leadership is all about lies and deceit.
