corruption in Congress

| No Comments | No TrackBacks

CREW (Citizens for Responsibility and Ethics in Washington) has released a report on Congressional corruption entitled "Beyond DeLay: The 20 Most Corrupt Members of Congress.” A summary is here and the full report is here (13MB PDF). It’s depressing reading, but the constituents of these 17 Republicans and 3 Democrats need to know this information before voting. CREW notes that, since last year’s report:

DeLay has resigned and two of the 13 members in last year’s report have pleaded guilty to corruption crimes: Rep. Randy “Duke” Cunningham (R-CA) is now serving an eight-year jail term for bribery and Rep. Bob Ney (R-OH) will likely serve at least two years for conspiracy and making false statements.

In addition, several other members, including Reps. William Jefferson, Alan Mollohan and Jerry Lewis, and Sens. Conrad Burns and Bill Frist are also under federal investigation.
