Rangel to Dems: Drop me if you must - Jonathan Allen and John Bresnahan - POLITICO.com

A subdued Charles Rangel started to tell colleagues Wednesday that he expects them to be with him only as long as they can.

It’s a favorite phrase of the ethics-embattled New York Democrat that means one politician shouldn’t sink his or her own political fortunes to help another.

“I know you love me,” Rangel quipped to one junior Democrat. “But love yourself more.”

Not even his colleagues know what Rangel will do Thursday, when the House ethics committee reveals what is expected to be a scathing slate of allegations of wrongdoing to open the congressional version of a trial.
