Has Melissa Bean Gotten Rid of Her Charlie Rangel Money?

Yesterday’s cartoon in the Chicago Tribune leads me to wonder if 8th District Congresswoman Melissa Bean has divested her campaign of the money contributed by ethics-challenged New York City Congressman Charlie Rangel.

The cartoon's text says, "Charles Rangel Center for the Study of How Many Seats He Can Lose for the Democrats If He Hangs Around."

July 23rd was the date that challenger Joe Walsh called Bean out on the issue.

Since then, Illinois Congressman Phil Hare has given his Rangel contributions to charity.

Hare has even called for Rangel’s ouster from Congress.

Maybe it’s because of an internal poll by Bobby Schilling which shows the GOP challenger ahead by 45-32.
