Embattled Rep. Charles Rangel is a “hero” to actor Ben Stein.
Harlem Congressman Charlie Rangel is now pleading for Congress to

humiliating public lecture from the speaker.
The “Lion of Harlem” has been chastened.
Congressman Charles Rangel walked out of his introductory ethics charge
hearing Monday, saying he was too poor for a lawyer.
