Rangel Watch: No. 1 In Lobbyist Donations

Yep, those Dems are sure for the little guy.

Especially Charlie Rangel, whose new tax plan is really going to be great for the economy, or, I mean, keeping Democrats in power by buying more votes using the massive federal purse.

NY Post reports that the powerful Congressman from Harlem has, in the first half of this year alone, received over $700,000 in lobbyist donations. That's more than twice the next guy on the list.

Now some math. The average donation is reportedly $2,282. That means to reach $732k, it would take more than 321 donations from lobbyists.

How many freakin' lobbyists are there???? Man, it must be great to be the Chair of the Ways and Means Committee.
