I know many of you will find this item very surprising, but the NY Daily News is reporting the FEC is accusing corrupt New York Politician, Rep. Charlie Rangel of breaking campaign rules

Rep. Charles Rangel’s reelection campaign accepted $6,700 in contributions over legal limits, the Federal Election Commission charged.

One of the donors who gave too much: Donald Harty, a big-time fast food franchisee who owned a KFC/Taco Bell that was infamously shut down in 2007 after TV cameras captured a swarm of rats running around inside.

He gave $3,600 for Rangel’s Democratic primary campaign — $1,000 over the limit for individual donors.

Also giving more than the limit was the National Association of Real Estate Investment Trusts.

Rangel drew scrutiny while chairman of the House Ways and Means Committee for advancing legislation that would benefit such trusts while pocketing donations from the group.

The other donations came from the Oneida Indian Nation and Gerald Cassidy, according to the FEC notice, which was sent last week.

Rangel campaign officials said they’ve refunded some of the contributions and shifted others to a general election account to comply with the law. They characterized the FEC notice as routine.

True, the FEC charges are routine (for Rangel) who acts as if the rules apply to everyone except for Rep. Rangel.
