Even though he could not get our name right, Rep. Charles Rangel (D-NY) concluded his remarks on the House floor on Tuesday with this:
“And lastly, I close by saying that there is an organization that some of you know — certainly the DCCC. National Truth in Government, whatever. And the only thing I can say that some of my more important Democrats on the list that sent out mail soliciting money in order to get rid of me, even before I became the chairman.
And they have a Web site that I will be giving you, because they’ve got a lot of members, including Black Caucus members, on their list. And one I do remember, ‘Send your money in now. We’ve got Rangel against the ropes. And we’ve got to get rid of him.’ Everyone knows who they are.
And they followed me on vacation. They followed me when I was doing business. They’re at the airport. They’re outside where I live. It’s kind of rough.”
