Loebsack discards Rangel contribution
Dave Loebsack is the first House Democrat to get rid of a donation from Charles Rangel's political action committee, the Politico reports.
Rangel, the House Ways and Means chairman, is under investigation for alleged ethics and tax violations.
Loebsack donated the $5,000 he received from Rangel's PAC to the Iowa City and Cedar Rapids chambers of commerce and three other organizations for flood relief efforts. His opponent, Republican Mariannette Miller-Meeks, had been critical of the donation.
