By FITSNews || A Washington, D.C.-based advocacy group has released its list of the top ten most corrupt politicians in the country, a revealing assemblage of ethically-challenged boondogglers that provides a glimpse at the tip of the corruption iceberg in our nation’s capital.
In the rankings, compiled by Judicial Watch, outgoing U.S. Sen. Chris Dodd (D – Connecticut) led the field as the most corrupt politician in the country. He was followed by disgraced Sen. Jon Ensign – the lone Republican to make the list.
Rounding out the top ten were Rep. Barney Frank, Treasury Secretary Tim Geithner, Attorney General Eric Holder, Rep. Jesse Jackson, Jr. and Sen. Roland Burris (both implicated in the Rod Blagojevich scandal), President Barack Obama, House Speaker Nancy Pelosi, Rep. John Murtha and Rep. Charlie Rangel.
What’s interesting about the list isn’t so much the names but the detailed justification for why each “honoree” was selected.
Frankly, based on some of the shady dealing at work during the recent Senate debate over Obama’s socialized medicine plans, we’re surprised that Senators Harry Reid, Ben Nelson and Mary Landrieu didn’t make this list.
Oh well, narrowing corruption in Washington to ten names is like reducing the Pacific Ocean to ten water droplets.
