Rep. Sutton (D-OH) wants Rangel to resign

By CREW Staff

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."
