"If your opponent is of choleric temperament, seek to irritate him." - Sun Tzu
Looks like that percentage will be playing out here.
Course Ranker doesn't Count all those little Municipalities and Local Politicians. But one can look up there too. For Nationwide.
As for The Repubs blocking out CNN and NBC from their primaries.....they will have to look to stump more. It's all they can really do.
Yeah so what....even if my claim is exaggerated at 15 to one......looks like those Democrats still have more. But since you were looking for names. I will surely Oblige your eeeeeeks and screeches.
Here is a list with 45 Names.....thru Ranker on the Federal level.
Democrat Corruption: List up Corrupt Democrats (Page 2)
Here are some more names and we are still not done with Chicago and Illinois with just those 469 in Northern Illinois.
Nick Mavroules, Massachusetts Democrat: tax evasion, accepting illegal gratuity (1992).
Albert Bustamante, Texas Democrat: racketeering (1993).
Carroll Hubbard, Kentucky Democrat: fraud and corruption (1994).

As Mark Twain said, Congress is the American Criminal Class.
Oh and this link states 1000 Chicago Politicians.....from 1972 to 2010. Which we know there isn't that many Republicans in Chicago that have held office Since 72. So it looks like the Odds still may play out with Illinois.

It is surprisingly difficult to win the "your party is more corrupt than mine" argument for some reason. Maybe it's like the "pot is blacker than the kettle" argument.
Can't we just turn Congress off and then turn it back on again?
