As the House Ethics Committee prepares its trial of Rep. Charles Rangel, at least one of Rangel's colleague's think it is time for him to quit. Via The Hill:
In a potential sign of what's to come, Rep. Betty Sutton (D-Ohio) on Friday night called on the beleaguered Rangel to resign. Sutton's statement came one day after the House ethics committee charged the 80-year-old Democrat with multiple violations.
"It is regrettable, but Charlie Rangel needs to resign from his seat in Congress," Sutton said in a statement. "This isn’t about being a Democrat or Republican, this is about preserving the public trust. Our nation is facing extraordinary challenges and we must be focused on building a sustainable economy that will allow our workers and businesses to flourish."
