From The Huffington Post:
U.S. Rep. Joe Walsh (R-Ill.) on Tuesday received the distinction of being named among Congress’s thirteen “most corrupt” representatives by the group Citizens For Responsibility And Ethics In Washington (CREW).
The report says that the freshman Tea Party-affiliated Congressman’s ethics issues “stem from his failure to pay child support and accurately disclose income and liabilities on his personal financial disclosure forms, and his campaign committee’s inaccurate reporting of interest payment on his loans to his campaigns.” These issues, according to the report, represent Walsh “act[ing] in a manner that does not reflect creditably on the House.”
The seventh annual ranking, based on news reports, Federal Election Commission reports, court documents and financial disclosure forms, also included one senator — David Vitter (R-La.) — and five additional House members who received “dishonorable mentions.” Altogether, the group includes seven Democrats and twelve Republicans.
