WASHINGTON - U.S. Rep. Paul Kanjorski (D-Nanticoke) is set to be the beneficiary of a Sept. 24 fundraiser featuring Charlie Rangel, the embattled chairman of the powerful House Ways and Means Committee.
The event, scheduled to take place at The Monocle restaurant on Capitol Hill, will help fill Kanjorski’s campaign coffers as he prepares to face off against Hazleton Mayor Lou Barletta.
Charlie has some issues and Kanjo doesn't have any problem raising money so why is he giving ammo to the other side?
“Birds of a feather flock together. This is just more damning evidence in the case against Paul Kanjorski,” said Ken Spain, a spokesman for the National Republican Congressional Committee. “Maybe Charlie Rangel and Paul Kanjorski can vacation in Punta Cana together after they are thrown out of office for ethical misconduct.”
Ed Mitchell punches back:
“When Lou Barletta gives back the thousands of dollars he received the convicted and jailed drug dealer and his brother in Hazleton, and when he gives back the thousands of dollars he received from landfill operators who are also under indictment, and when he gives back the money he has received from indicted U.S. Sen. Ted Stevens, we’ll give some thought to cancelling our fundraiser with Charlie Rangel."
