Gene Taylor Calls On Rangel To Step Down
Rep. Gene Taylor joined a couple of other Congressional Democrats in breaking ranks and calling on Rep. Charles Rangel to resign his post as House Ways and Means Chairman- one of the most powerful jobs in Congress.
This call came out after an ethics committee investigation found that Rangel violated House rules by accepting Caribbean junkets. Prior to this, Rangel’s only opposition had come from Republicans.
Taylor said that Rangel “should step down, or at least step aside until all this is resolved.” He added: “The citizens of his home state sent him here, that’s their decision. But members of the (Democratic Caucus) made him chairman of that committee, and he should step down until all this is resolved.”
