Following is Citizens for Ethics and Responsibility in Washington Report on this years year most corrupt Congressmen/women. There are 4 Democrats and 8 Republicans. Our own Contention is they are all corrupt, both parties. However there are those who dispute anything put together by CREW labeling it a front group of the Democratic party.
So a word about their documentation: To create this report, CREW reviewed media articles, Federal Election Commission reports, court documents, and members’ personal financial and travel disclosure forms. We then analyzed that information in light of federal laws and regulations as well as congressional ethics rules.
You will also find that the allegations are heavily footnoted should you wish to research the data yourself. Now you can say, "it's all lies" because you did not hear it on your favorite corporate sponsored mass media news source. Or you can do the research. We suspect all to many are to lazy to do the research and just choose to disbelieve that which they do not choose to believe. CREW's Most Corrupt Members of Congress 2012
