When asked on NY1 last night if he thought Reps. Charlie Rangel and Maxine Waters were being targeted for congressional ethics investigations because of their race, the Rev. Calvin Butts Jr. offered this gem:
“I will never say that. But it surely looks that way.”
Butts is an influential pastor in Harlem who is no stranger to politics. Among his highlights was endorsing Hillary Clinton in the 2008 Democratic presidential primary.
