Rep. Charles B. Rangel is not the only lawmaker with a university program financed in part by gifts from companies with business before Congress, The New York Times reported. It said that nearly a dozen current or former lawmakers have such endowments. Funding for a center honoring Rangel at City College of City University of New York is at the center of one of the ethics charges facing Rangel. The Times article, however, noted that the other lawmakers say that they were much less involved in raising funds for these centers than Rangel is alleged to have been.
