    The List Posted at Judicial Watch:



    The Ten Most Wanted Corrupt Politicians in Washington for 2011

    Their Dishonorable Mentions are:


    Do you agree with the reasons Judicial Watch gives?

    I've seen these names again and again on similar kinds of lists. Why are these people being reelected after their corruption scandals come out?

    About the only thing that stops them are jail sentences, and then, sometimes one of them comes back and gets himself reelected, only to repeat the offenses.

    How out of control is this?

    Well, nobody's perfect, but someone who is popularly voted in by the people to conduct the nation's business in favor of the people of his district should do just that, and many do.

    I just don't understand why someone who was so corrupt he was put in jail for crimes committed in office is allowed to run for public office in another capacity, only to become cited for corruption again.

    The laws are getting to be so skanky criminals run for office and stupid people vote for them. Alcee Hastings comes to mind. He's on the list, too, after years of lying, cheating, obfuscating, and who knows what all.

    Newt Gingrich? He doesn't even hold an office. They really had to reach deep to get any Republicans in office. The John Ensign imbroglio occurred almost 3 years ago. They claimed Bachus was the focus of the Insider trading scandal, but everything I've seen and read about it features Nazi Pelosi.

    There are 438 Representatives and 100 Senators. Are you saying over 100 are not? )

    with Hastings, he represents a district where concern for law and order isn't very high to start with. So getting impeached for taking a bribe is almost a mark of honor.
