Charles Rangel on Supporting Occupy Wall Street

This month Rep. Charles Rangel (D-N.Y.) was the first member of Congress to visit the Occupy Wall Street protest -- but contrary to some reports, he says that he was not booed out of the place. The jeers from the crowd, Rangel told The Root, were directed instead at a lone heckler who interrupted his speech supporting the movement. The Harlem lawmaker also said that the voice of a frustrated constituency -- even if it's just to say, "I'm mad as hell" -- is welcome and necessary for Congress to act on unemployment, foreclosure and the dissolving middle class. Rangel spoke with us about what he ...

Charlie Rangel crashes Rick Perry's Harlem party

Texas Gov. Rick Perry got an unexpected welcoming party when the GOP presidential candidate arrived in Harlem today: Longtime Democratic Rep. Charles Rangel. The wily Democrat, who has represented the largely black and Latino neighborhood for 42 years in the House, startled reporters waiting for Perry when he turned up outside Papasito's Bar, where the governor was scheduled to meet local business readers. Wearing a cat-that-ate-the-canary grin, the congressman insisted that he "had no idea it was a Republican event." Tongue remaining firmly in cheek, he continued that he felt he should be ...

Poten. Challenger Claims Rangel Vulnerable This Go Around

Charles Rangel may be a Harlem institution, but a poll paid for by a potential rival says he's beatable. Clyde Williams, former adviser to President Bill Clinton with ties to President Obama, didn't want to blindly challenge the 42-year incumbent.So Williams hired one of Mayor Bloomberg’s pollsters, Whitman Insight Strategies, to ask 600 likely Democratic primary voters in the district if they would re-elect Rangel.The answer: only 35% said they would send Rangel back to Congress, company president Bernard Whitman said."If you are an incumbent, and less than 50% of the people polled say ...

Rangel Statement on the Passing of Former Attorney General Janet Reno
New York, NY –Congressman Charles B. Rangel, who represents the 13th Congressional District of New York that includes Upper Manhattan and parts of the Bronx, released the following statement on the death of former Attorney General Janet Reno. “I am deeply saddened today by the passing of Janet Reno. Attorney General Reno was a true trailblazer whose steadfast pursuit of justice helped shaped our nation's legal landscape, transform the Justice Department, and raise the bar for public servants to new heights. From her work in Dade County Miami as State Attorney, where she reformed the long troubled juvenile justice system, to her work in Washington as the nation’s top lawyer, Attorney General Reno was always known as a champion for women’s rights, friend of the under-represented communities, and a fair arbiter of the law. Throughout her eight years leading the Department of Justice, she developed a stellar reputation for transparency, objectivity, and accountability which was e
Rangel Introduces Bill to Abolish The Electoral College
Washington, D.C. - Congressman Charles B. Rangel introduced, H.J. Res 103, a bill today that would allow Congress to vote to eliminate the Electoral College system and decide future presidential elections by the outcome of the popular vote. This legislation is the House companion bill to S.J.Res.41, introduced by Senator Barbara Boxer (D-CA) on November 15, 2016. “I came to Congress on the heels of the Civil Rights Movement, and I know how hard we fought for the sacred right to vote,” said Rangel. “To protect it, everyone should have access to the vote, and every vote must count. The fact that a candidate can receive more votes than the other but lose the election is fundamentally undemocratic.” Secretary Hillary Clinton, who received at least 62,825,754 votes in the presidential election, won the popular vote over Donald Trump. It is estimated that by the time all the votes are counted, Secretary Clinton may win the popular vote by over two million votes and more than 1.5
Rangel Applauds Passage of House Bill Encouraging Reunions for Divided Families
Washington, DC – Congressman Charles B. Rangel (D-NY) praised the passage of  H.Con.Res.40, a resolution that encourages North Korea to allow Korean Americans to meet with their family members from North Korea and calls on North Korea to take concrete steps to build goodwill that is conducive to peace on the Korean Peninsula. Introduced by Rep. Rangel with House Foreign Affairs Chairman Ed Royce (R-CA), the bill passed the House of Representatives on Tuesday, November 29, 2016, by a voice vote.  “More than anything else, Congress is saying today that let the people God created of the same blood, same background, same culture – let them meet. Rangel said. “This resolution lays the foundation for divided family members to meet their loved ones whom they have not been able to see for over six decades,” I could never imagine being unable to see my brother or daughter for that length of time. These Americans have every right to see their loved ones and it is our duty to help
Emotional message to former Congressman Charles Rangel
Article featured in Impacto New York, published on November 11, 2016.  Por Felix Grant   Ante un salón repleta de público, se realizó la ceremonia de homenaje y tributo de honor a la figura del excongresista por el distrito 13 de Nueva York, el demócrata Charles Rangel, al retirarse después de que ocupara el cargo durante medio siglo. Cuando el excongresista Charles Rangel, de 86 años entró al salón de Alhambra Ballroom, los más de 300 asistentes se pusieron de pie, aplaudieron y lo saludaron. Cuando llegó a su mesa, su amigo David Dinkins lo estaba esperando. “Te conozco”, dijo Rangel a Dinkins, los espectadores rieron. Y cuando vio el primer y único alcalde afroamericano de la ciudad de Nueva a York con un plato de comida, dijo también en broma, “Voy a comer lo que él está comiendo”, obteniendo más risas del público e invitados. Los oradores invitados el congresista por Queens, Gregory Meeks, Rev. Cal Washington Jr de New Mount Zion Baptist Church, rev
