According the New York Post, Charles Rangel is expected to run for a 23rd term for his Harlem Congressional seat. Despite an ethics scandal in 2010, Rangel has twice been re-elected since. At 83 years old one might be expected to be bidding adieu to the Congressman, but he seems to have more determination and resiliency than a hockey masked serial killer chasing co-eds through the woods
It was over 40 years ago that Rangel disposed of the legendary Adam Clayton Powell Jr. So in 2014 who will step up to be the Rangel to Rangel’s Powell or is Rangel not even Powell? Perhaps Rangel is our first immortal member of Congress-holding on to his office until the sun burns out and the Earth is a cold barren wasteland or cool ski destination for vacationing space aliens.
