What Was That About Celebrating Before the EndZone?

Charlie Rangel is already booking speaking events about his upcoming tenure as chairman of Ways and Means:

Sent: Wed Oct 25 09:15:47 2006

Subject: Rep. Rangel to Speak at ACCF Forum on Nov. 14

Please join us for an ACCF Capital Formation breakfast forum with Congressman Charles B. Rangel (D-NY).

Date: Tuesday, November 14, 2006

Time: 8:00 – 9:00 a.m.

Place: The Capitol Hill Club

300 First Street, SE

Washington, DC

Cost: $35.00/person

Congressman Rangel will speak on “What Can and Should the Ways and Means Committee Do in the First Session of the 110th Congress.” If the Democrats are the majority party in the 110th Congress, most observers believe Congressman Rangel, currently the Ranking Democratic member of the Ways and Means Committee, will be the Chairman of the Committee. If the Republicans remain in the majority, the New York Congressman can continue in his role as the Committee’s ranking member.

To register, please mail this form with your check to ACCF, 1750 K St., NW, Suite 400, Washington, DC 20006. You are welcome to bring a guest to the forum. Cost: $35.00/person.
