Dirty Money Watch: Sen. Mark Udall (D-CO)

Commentary Staff Writer

November 24, 2009

WHO: Sen. Mark Udall, D-Colo.

WHAT: Udall received $10,000 from Rep. Charles Rangel’s National Leadership PAC, the political action committee of the powerful New York Democrat who is chairman of the House Ways and Means Committee that writes tax law.

WHY IT’S DIRTY: Rangel is being investigated on multiple issues by the House Ethics Committee, including failure to report income from properties he owns in New York and the Dominican Republic. A company that gave $1 million to a New York school facility that will bear Rangel’s name subsequently received lucrative tax breaks, and he has reportedly solicited political contributions on official stationery.

WILL UDALL GIVE IT BACK? Udall did not respond to The Examiner’s request for comment.

Number of Democrats who have given it back: 0
Number of Republicans who have given it back: 0

Gave donation to charity: Rep. Steve Israel, D-N.Y., Rep. Nita Lowey, D-N.Y., Rep. Michael McCaul, R-Texas, Rep. Allyson Schwartz, D-Pa., Rep. Ed Perlmutter, D-Colo., Rep. David Price, D-N.C.
