John R. Carter

2:41:28 to 2:41:48( Edit History Discussion )

John R. Carter: and say something that's very important. this weekend, i had a couple of opportunities where i was interviewed by national news organizations on television. one of the questions that was asked of me was at least there has been some inference this is a racially motivated situation

John R. Carter

2:41:49 to 2:42:10( Edit History Discussion )

John R. Carter: that i'm in right here. and my statement and i'll stick to this statement because it's the truth. this issue is not about race. this issue is about responsibility. and meeting the responsibilities of this house. mr. rangel needs to meet his responsibilities.

John R. Carter

2:42:55 to 2:43:16( Edit History Discussion )

John R. Carter: twice and both times in your financial favor. this is pelosi's -- she should give rangel a week to do the right thing and if he doesn't, she must. this is about responsibility and that's what we're talking about, being responsible to the rules

John R. Carter

2:43:17 to 2:43:26( Edit History Discussion )

John R. Carter: of this house and to the rules of law. and now, there are two individuals here that have the opportunity to do what is right
