Adam Powell IV to challenge Charlie Rangel (D, NY-15).

Revenge is a dish best served cold, it seems.

NEW YORK – The son of a legendary New York congressman has announced he will challenge Rep. Charles Rangel.

Assemblyman Adam Clayton Powell IV told supporters Monday it was time for new leadership in the district, which covers the heart of the city’s Harlem neighborhood.

H/T The Corner, and that’s all the time we should waste on this story of the son of the man that Rangel ousted on an anti-corruption campaign… challenging Rangel on an anti-corruption campaign. No doubt one of Rangel’s children, or at this point grandsons will arise in time to challenge Adam Powell IV in turn, and so it will continue, without end…

Alternatively, NY-15 could just elect Michel Faulkner: that would short-circuit the entire sad, sorry cycle. More on Michel here.
