Use of Campaign Funds

Rep. Rangel’s use of campaign funds for legal expenses is discussed here.

A newspaper says New York Rep. Charles Rangel paid more than $100,000 in campaign funds to a law firm to represent him as he continues to face ethical questions over his tax records.

The New York Post reported Sunday that the powerful chairman of the tax-writing House Ways and Means Committee had hired the law firm though his Rangel for Congress fund.

Federal election rules prohibit elected officials from using campaign funds for personal legal expenses.
