Disgraced Charles Rangel dating Nancy Pelosi again

From Dana Milbank at the Washington Post comes this story of Nancy Pelosi standing side-by-side with Charles Rangel at a fancy fundraising soirée for the disgraced Congressman on Wednesday evening. Here, in a letter to supporters, are his own words:

“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.”

It was just a year ago that Mr. Rangel stood in the well of the House of Representatives and received a dressing-down by Mrs. Pelosi for 11 ethics violations. Now, Nancy and Charlie sashay the money-dance while we wonder why Congressional approval stands at 9%.
