Rangel spends less on political donations


Embattled Rep. Charlie Rangel, D-N.Y., didn't spend much on political donations this summer.

But Rep. Dina Titus, D-Nev., was one of only two politicians on his list, according to a Politico report on documents Rangel filed with the Federal Election Commission.

Here's a snippet from the story:

"While during the same period two years ago, Rangel doled out $38,000 to Democratic challengers and incumbents, Rangel handed out only $2,000 this summer, with that going to fellow Democratic Reps. Eric Massa (N.Y.) and Dina Titus (Nev.). In addition, Rangel donated $15,500 to the Congressional Black Caucus Foundation, the non-profit arm of African-American lawmakers on Capitol Hill. Rangel is one of the CBC's most senior members."
