Mark Hemingway reports:

At least 27 Democratic members of the House of Representatives have sent to charities $378,000 in campaign donations from scandal-plagued Rep. Charles Rangel, D-N.Y., since Feb. 28.

Starting last November, The Examiner’s “Dirty Money Watch” has highlighted 39 senators and representatives and asked whether they planned to keep campaign donations from Rangel.

The Examiner has found $378,000 of Rangel’s contributions that have been donated by 27 recipients to charity.
