Things are getting hot in Harlem. The House Ethics Committee has expanded its investigation of longtime Harlem resident, Representative Charles Rangel of New York, to include his revisions to financial statements that revealed assets and income not previously reported, according to TIME.com. Rangel is also the House and Means Committee chairman. The committee also disclosed it has authorized nearly 150 subpoenas in the investigation of Rangel, has interviewed 34 witnesses and reviewed more than 12,000 pages of documents. The committee has expanded the investigation several times, concentrating previously on alleged financial improprieties and fundraising irregularities.–BB
