Ilk: 'Princess' Pelosi, Hoyer, Clyburn, Others Give Full Support for Ethically Challenged Rangel's Re-Election Bid

Dana Milbank | WaPo:

Almost exactly a year ago, members of Congress voted overwhelmingly to censure their colleague Rep. Charlie Rangel for bringing dishonor on the House. Then-House Speaker Nancy Pelosi summoned the New York Democrat to the well and chastised him for his 11 ethics violations, which included improper fundraising.

This week, Rangel again brought the House into disrepute — but this time he had the full support of his colleagues.

"Last night marked a momentous evening in my campaign for re-election," Rangel wrote Thursday in a letter to supporters. "At a special event in Washington, Democratic leaders including Nancy Pelosi, Steny Hoyer, James Clyburn, Sandy Levin, John Con­yers, Emmanuel Cleaver, and Steve Israel stood by my side and pledged their unwavering support on my behalf. I am so humbled and grateful for their involvement."

" Nothing in the world is more flexible and yielding than water. Yet when it attacks the firm and the strong, none can withstand it, because they have no way to change it. So the flexible overcome the adamant, the yielding overcome the forceful. Everyone knows this, but no one can do it. "
