Bye bye RangelSubmitted by northstar on Wed, 03/03/2010 - 02:37
It's about time.
Rangel was bluntly told he doesn't have the votes to hang onto his powerful perch atop the tax-writing committee, and he will have to quit as chairman as soon as Wednesday, sources told the Daily News.
"I don't think he's angry just as much as he's trying to do what's in the best interest of the [party]," a Democratic source said.
"It's a real kick in the ass," the source said. "He's obviously down, it's not something he wanted to do."
