Rangel Called to Release His Tax Returns

September 2, 2009

Rep. Darrell Issa (R-Calif.) on Wednesday called on Rep. Charles Rangel (D-N.Y.) to release his tax returns. Issa also wants Democratic leaders to yank Rangel’s Ways and Means chairmanship if he refuses or if the returns show tax reporting violations. “Congressman, I’m asking you to release your tax returns,” Issa said in an interview with The Hill. “He’s got to resolve the difference on whether these are reporting errors on a financial disclosure form or whether he’s been filing false returns with the IRS.”
