Rangel faces five primary opponents amid ethics scandal

Mary Snow

New York (CNN) - He's served in Congress for almost 40 years, but Tuesday's primary in New York will be unlike any other for Democratic Congressman Charles Rangel.

The 80-year-old Rangel is fighting five challengers and an ethics trial in the House later this month on 13 alleged violations.

In years past, his re-election has been a slam dunk. While he is expected to win again, Rangel's taking nothing for granted.

    Greed is a hard one too win. It is all about that money.

    How can anyone vote for someone who is up on ethics charges? I don't think the Congress moved on these charges unless they had plenty of evidence and believed the charges well-founded and severe enough not to overlook. Rangel may have served 40 years but its evident that he didn't pay attention to the rules for at least some of the time.

    I'm simply amazed this man is still running for office. What ever happened to the letter of the law?

    Yeah, I'm sure those he's been catering to are pushing for him to win again, those are the people most likely for the reason he's got an ethics trial for violations pending.
