7 have been arrested for fraud

19 have been accused of writing bad checks

117 have directly or indirectly bankrupted at least 2 businesses

3 have done time for assault

71, I repeat 71
cannot get a credit card due to bad credit
14 have been arrested on drug-related

8 have been arrested! for shoplifting

21currently are defendants in lawsuits,

Can you guess which organization this is?
Is it the NBA Or NFL?

Give up yet?
Scroll down,

it's the 535 members of the
United States Congress

The same group of Idiots that crank out
hundreds of new laws each
designed to keep the rest of us in line.

I have seen this before but

I have seen this before but it still gets under my skin. IMO as soon as these folks are convicted of a felony or any drug/alcohol related crime they should immediately be removed from office.

Necessary Evil

It just proves that government and politicians are evil.

I would be tempted to say, "a necessary evil" but some days I'm not so sure they are even necessary.

Funny, but unfortunately for

Funny, but unfortunately for our society, I bet you could take a sample of 530+ people from most groups and come up with stats like that.  There's bad apples everywhere.

Bad apples

I wouldn't give them a pass as there are bad apples every, which there are. It's like a super athlete, like it or noit, you get to that point and you become a roll model. Ya may not want to but you do.

In government they do that stuff and I think they should not only be removed from office but also  lose that super retirement program they have, reguardless of years service. Attitude refects leadership! If the government can't set high standards on themselves the we really don't need them. Shoot any moron can do all those things.

That is a pretty good trick

That is a pretty good trick question.  I thought for sur it would have been the NBA.  But after you revelaed the real source...does not surpeise me at all.  I too feel that once thy have been convicted of any crime they should in a sense be fired from office and not allowed to return.  Such a double standar when it comes to these guys..most of us would get the book thrown at us, not these guys they get to still make decsioins that effect us and make two three times as much as we do.
