It's because it would appear that the bulk of the members of Congress are lying, cheating thieves.
"Many members" of Congress suffer from the same disclosure issues as Rep. Charles Rangel (D.N.Y.), one of his allies said Wednesday.Republicans were trying to remove the corrupt, thieving and lying Charlie Rangle from his position of head of one of the most powerful committees in Congress. His buddies on the Democrat side of the isle though, don't see a problem with the chairman of the committee that oversees the IRS and sets tax code for the United States having broken the very laws that he is responsible for making the rest of us live by.
Rep. Maxine Waters (D-Calif.) downplayed the seriousness of allegations against Rangel that he failed to disclose sources of income and pay taxes on some properties, saying that many lawmakers suffer from innocent lapses in judgment when filing mandatory financial disclosure forms.
"I want to tell you, there are many members who, if you go back over all of their records, over all of the years, you're going to find that there were disclosures that were not made," Waters said during an appearance on MSNBC Wednesday morning.
