US Congressman from Harlem, NYC, Charlie Rangel has been parlaying rent-controlled apartments like quenelles at Belmont. Rangel has taken over an entire floor of the exclusive Lenox Terrace and is living in style while many of his constituents are crammed into tiny apartments with roaches and rats as room mates.
Apparently Olnick Organization, one of Harlem's more prominent slumlords has been giving King Charlie a sweetheart deal. Besides four adjoined apartments, Rangel also has a rent-controlled campaign headquarters in a city where rent stabilization is exclusively for primary dwellings. Rangel told reporters that the headquarters is for campaigning in the primary.
The Donaldo of the Ghetto refused to answer questions and scoffed at reporters who suggested this revelation of corruption might hurt his re election chances." I'm Chairman of the Ways and Means committee and I found the way to make me a man of means." Rangel ridiculed the suggestions by sarcastically reminding reporters that he has been elected 38 times:" These niggas love me ! They call be Uncle Charlie...that is when they don't call me 'Massah'.
