Crooks All Around Us

The NY Times details the myriad of members of congress under investigation. So far there are 12 Republicans and 2 democrats under some sort of inquiry. Of course, Republicans are more corrupt than democrats due to their lack of ethics, but their power over the last 12 years helped them have something to offer for those who wanted to cheat the system.

I wasn't using hyperbole btw about the lack of ethics of Republicans in congress. They are tolerating the heck out of the crimes of the Bush administration. They refused to do oversight. The democrats did much more oversight of Clinton.

The GOP now is a festering wound of corruption. They genuinely don't give a shit about ethics. Tom Delay may be gone (under indictment), but his spirit lives on.
