Rangel Courted Trump to Fund Center

Rep. Charles Rangel (D-NY) "was so eager to launch an academic center in his name at City College that he backed naming a program there for Donald Trump," the New York Post reports.

"Rangel himself wrote two letters to Trump -- including on his congressional stationary in violation of ethics rules -- pitching the 'Charles B. Rangel Center for Public Service'... As it turned out, Trump never gave to the Rangel Center, and the congressman was subsequently censured in 2010 for ethics violations that included improper fund-raising for the center with congressional resources."
