Rangel as Albatross

Should be only a matter of minutes until this slob cries racism. I can understand candidates tying Charlie Rangel around the necks of those he supports, since there clearly isn't enough material on earth to tie around his judging by the lovely photo. He ought to seriously consider salads.
Embattled Rep. Charles Rangel has become an albatross around the necks of congressional candidates across the country.

In at least a dozen contests, Republican challengers are demanding their Democratic rivals return donations from Rangel, who is under fire for having four rent-regulated apartments.

In Montgomery, Ala., Republican hopeful Jay Love has made Bobby Bright's refusal to give back $14,000 in Rangel contributions a campaign centerpiece.

"If Bobby Bright is attempting to be a clean-cut, conservative candidate with Christian values, his association with a liberal, unethical person like Charlie Rangel is going to hurt him," said Alabama GOP spokesman Philip Bryan.
