Charlie Rangel Says It's Wrong To Abuse The Tax System

The New York Democrat was censured in 2010 for ethics violations including tax evasion.

WASHINGTON — Rep. Charlie Rangel, the New York Democrat who was once censured by the House for ethics violations that included tax evasion, spoke out against tax abuse at a hearing Friday.

Rangel was questioning Steven Miller, the outgoing director of the Internal Revnue Service, at hearing on the ongoing scandal that the IRS improperly targeted conservative nonprofit groups.

"This is wrong to abuse the tax system, this screams out for tax reform does it not?" Rangel asked.

Rangel's questioning of Miller focused on the fact that applications for 501c(4) tax-exempt groups increased after the Supreme Court's Citizen's United ruling. Rangel momentarily forget the name of the case.

"After the Supreme Court decision in Citizen's Union," Rangel said, until a colleague corrected him. "What? United, whatever."
