Charlie Rangel Earmarks Funds for His Favorite Cause - Himself

Charlie Rangel, one of the Donk's favorite loony members, has been caught adding an outrageous $2 Million earkmark - The Charles B. Rangel Center for Public Service at City College.
New York Rep. Charles Rangel has been raising funds from taxpayers and corporations for a center in Harlem to be named after a prominent U.S. congressman – Charles Rangel.

The Democrat has quietly raised nearly $25 million for the Charles B. Rangel Center for Public Service at City College, located in a four-story Harlem building and aimed at steering low-income and minority students into politics, the New York Post reports.

Last week Rangel – chairman of the House Ways and Means Committee – pushed through a $2 million "earmark” in the House to serve as seed money for the project.

Ol' Charlie is jealous, he is tired of hearing about the Robert Byrd Memorial Bridge, the Robert Byrd Center for Pathological Liars and the Robert Byrd Rest Stop and Gay Pick-up Bar, so he figures he can outdo the Kleagle. And he is trying his damnest to do just that.

I wonder what they will teach at the Charles B. Rangel Center for Public Service? You just know that the curriculum has to have these classes: How to Steal Votes 101, Demagoguery 203, Rhetorical Spewing 302, Al Sharpton Style Race Baiting 201, and even How to Rip Off the Taxpayers to Pay for Stupid Projects 404.

What will be his next project? The Charlie Rangel Center for Instituting the Draft? Or the Charlie Rangel Center on Worthless PORK?

I just bet the Charles B. Rangel Center for Public Service is a fun place to learn socialist nonsense, too bad they have to use my money to pay for it!
