Always the classiest of classy gents, New York Rep. Charlie Rangel has magnanimously deigned to temporarily relinquish the chairmanship of the congressional Ways and Means Committee for reasons not entirely un-related to the 900 ethics issues currently piling up behind him…
Rangel says he's stepping aside only temporarily, but he officially resigned the post in a letter submitted to the House Wednesday morning…
Rangel chose to step down, he said, because the matter "is bringing so much attention to the press and [I want]… to avoid my colleagues having to defend me during their elections."
Who do you think they should get to play Rangel in the movie adaptation of this gloriously uplifting tearjerker of a story?
I'm thinking Niecy Nash.
