Charlie Rangel Dances At New York Campaign Rally (VIDEO)

Posted: Updated:

There ain't no stopping Rep. Charlie Rangel (D-N.Y.) now, at least not from dancing up a storm.

Obispo Annette Jimenez, a New York-based Rangel fan, has posted video of the former chairman of the House Ways and Means Committee dancing in front of his Harlem constituents during a 2010 campaign rally.

The video, which shows Rangel dancing to the McFadden and Whitehead song "Ain't No Stopping Us Now," was posted by Jimenez on her YouTube channel Wednesday. Rangel appears to be dancing with New York City Councilwoman Inez Dickens (D-Harlem), though her identity is not confirmed in the video.

Dickens is mentioned as a potential Rangel successor should the congressman step down.

Rangel, who was first elected in 1970, is currently seeking another term in his seat, which could potentially include parts of suburban Westchester County under New York's unreleased new congressional district maps.
