Meet the 20 Most Corrupt Members of Congress
Citizens for Responsibility and Ethics in Washington (CREW) released its list of the most corrupt members of Congress, an annual occurrence.
CREW, a non-partisan group, has identified the 12 most corrupt members, along with eight others who earned a dishonorable mention on account of their misdeeds.
Not surprisingly, three congressmen from Florida make the cut. They are: Rep. Vern Buchanan (R-FL), Rep. Cliff Stearns (R-FL) and Rep. David Rivera (R-FL).
According to CREW, those who make the list have “engaged in campaign finance violations, steered campaign donations and taxpayer money to themselves and their families, concealed the source of campaign funds and traded campaign contributions for official action and abused their positions.”
