As his political clout has waned, and legal costs mount, NY rep Charles Rangel's charitable contributions have declined -- in some cases, over 95%.
"As his fund-raising power dwindled after the loss of his position on the tax-writing committee and his 2010 censure by the House of Representatives, the donations to community groups, churches and cultural organizations declined as well. Hefty legal bills have also contributed to Mr. Rangel’s fund-raising challenges." -- Derek Willis, the New York Times
