Fallout From The 13th Congressional Election Victory of Charles Rangel

  Here are some items of interest that have happened since the 13th congressional election Tuesday June 24th where Charles Rangel defeated State Senator Adriano Espiallat to keep his seat in congress. 

1 - Candidate Adriano Espiallat decided to wait two days before conceding to the Congressman Rangel who won by a larger margin then two years ago.

2 - Elizabeth Ritter who was on the petition for state senate in the district of Senator Espiallat has withdrawn, and is supporting her boss current State Senator Adriano Espiallat to be her replacement.

3 - A scheduled 'unity rally' with both Congressman Charles Rangel and State Senator Adriano Espaillat planned by Al Sharpton was cancelled on Friday due to concerns that it would led to more disharmony.

4 - It is reported that Mayor Bill deBlasio has not called Congressman Rangel to congratulate him on his win.

5 - Then there is the case against now former Espiallat ally and Assemblywoman Gabriela Rosa by U.S. Attorney Preet Bharara. Rosa has resigned from the assembly, pled guilty to having a arraigned sham marriage to become a U.S. citizen, and also lying about her assets in bankruptcy court. 

What else can happen?
