Charlie Rangel: Plea bargaining an is an ‘English, Anglo-Saxon’ procedure 

Scandal-plagued Congressman Charlie Rangel has an, uh, unusual take on our judicial system:

The two-year House ethics probe found a “pattern” of rule-breaking by Rangel, including a failure to report $1.7 million in personal assets over the years, not paying taxes in rental income from his Dominican villa, and using his office to raise money for a center named for himself at City College — stories first reported in The Post.

The Harlem Democrat yesterday likened himself to a defendant being asked to confess to crimes he didn’t commit and dismissed talk of a plea bargain as “English, Anglo-Saxon” procedure for criminal cases.

Just doing his part to help race relations, I guess.
