The news that Rep. Charles Rangel faces multiple ethics charges traveled fast in Harlem, where some of his disgusted constituents said they’ve had enough of their scandal-scarred congressman.
“It’s sad. I’m sad. I trusted him,” said Michelle Thomas, a Harlem retiree.
“If he represents the people, he has to set an example for the people. We pay taxes. He should pay taxes.”
Alexandra Rawles, 41, said she’s not going to vote for Rangel again.
“It’s time for him to move on,” said Rawles, a Democrat like the congressman.
