The temperature on House Ways and Means Committee Chairman Charlie Rangel has recently been dialed up – and only partially due to his love for sunbathing.

Leave it to the New York post to uncover the possible shady dealings by Congressman Rangel.

Cash Cow:

For 20 years, Harlem Rep. Charles Rangel has owned a beachfront villa in a sun-drenched Dominican Republic resort, yet has only sporadically declared income on the property in federal filings. While the villa was rented to paying guests for the past two years, for instance, Rangel reported no income from it in 2006 and 2007, The Post has learned. As a congressman, failure to fully list all income and investments can result in civil penalties or criminal charges.  [moo]

Rangel, ironically, is chairman of the House committee that writes the nation’s tax laws.

It’s been a rough week for Uncle Charlie, who was snubbed and then un-snubbed by DNC organizers who were not excited about giving him a speaking role. [poor Chuck]

At least he was able to catch a quick nap before controversy began to swirl.
