Rangel "Doesn't Give a Damn About What The President Thinks About This" and Won't Step Down

This was in response to a quote from Obama saying the allegations against Rangel were "very troubling"

[A] person close to the Rangel tells POLITICO the embattled Democrat “doesn’t give a damn about what the president thinks about this” and won’t step down.

“[Obama’s] statement comes as no surprise to us,” said a person close to Rangel, speaking on condition of anonymity because he wasn’t authorized to speak publicly for the congressman. “We’re not surprised by this, we’ve known the people in the White House have felt this way for a while, but this doesn’t change anything for us.” Source: politico
