Subject: Mr. Chairman -- Keep the Party Going

Dear Friends,

Please join us on Wednesday, June 13, at 8:00 am for a breakfast honoring Congressman Charles B. Rangel (D-NY). Rep. Rangel is Chairman of the Ways and Means Committee. We are thrilled for this opportunity to celebrate and honor a truly dedicated and hard-working public servant. Serving as Dean of the New York Delegation, Charlie is the fourth-longest serving Democratic member of the House. He is also celebrating a 77th birthday on Monday.

We hope you can join us for what promises to be an intimate and belated birthday party. The event will be held at the Phoenix Park Hotel, 520 North Capitol Street, and the suggested contribution is $2,500 PAC and $1,000 personal. Checks can be made out to "Rangel for Congress." Please forward this invite to someone who may also be interested in attending or contributing.

Thank you for your consideration,


Here's who Heather Podesta is.  Yes, Podesta should be a familiar name.  She's the wife of big name lobbyist Tony Podesta, who is the brother of Clinton White House Chief of Staff and current Center for American Progressive head John Podesta.

Progressives have a lot of work ahead of us.

Oh, and if you have $1000 for a breakfast or $2500 from your PAC, I'm sure it's going to be yummy. They'll probably have bacon. Mmmm.

Just wrap your bills in freezer proof paper.  After his secret trade deal, I wouldn't go if they paid me $1,000 and gave me the whole cake.

So Now ALL Black Representatives Under a Cloud?

Rangel isn't doing anything different than any of his other colleagues. At least they are feeding people cake instead of hot dogs.  Nobody said anything about John Breaux's extravagant parties when everone was begging him to run for governor. You can find an e-mail like that by every other representative.  

Once you contribute $25 you get these types of invites all the time.  Rangel's not going anywhere.  Pick another target.

What exactly is it that "progressives" are going to work on? Gettign a primary candidate to run against Rangel? HA! Throw your own fundraisers!
