DENVER—This morning, The New York Post reported that a $100,000 donation from Charlie Rangel’s political action committee to the Democratic National Committee was returned because Barack Obama does not want the organization to take money from P.A.C.s.
Rangel says he doesn’t know anything about it.
As the congressman left a closed-door lunch at the Sheraton this afternoon, I asked him about the story–and mentioned the source.
He turned to one of his aides and asked, “Did you hear anything like that?”
The aide shrugged.
Walking away, Rangel turned to me and said, “So much for the New York Post.”
