Rangel Walks Out of Ethics Panel

I have long admired Rep. Charlie Rangel. But, his decision to walk out of the Ethics Committee meeting today reeks of theater not governance.

He should keep walking. After an election, the results of which were hardly to my liking, people have a right to believe that they have turned a page and directed their legislators to move in a new direction.

Rangel's shenanigans suggest that nothing has changed. What a shame that such a storied career ends in such follish stagecraft.
