    From the link:

    "in addition to the tax evasion plea, Grimm also publicly admitted to hiring undocumented workers, lying under oath while serving in Congress, obstructing federal and state officials, and cheating employees out of employment insurance claims."

    Yeah, it might be time for him to go.

    Here's a couple lists of representatives that have gone wrong, one list is of censured and the other is of reps. convicted.

    List of United States senators expelled or censured - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia

    List of United States Representatives expelled, censured, or reprimanded - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia

    List of American federal office holders convicted of crimes - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia

    Pretty extensive, and it brings old memories back to people I had forgotten about.
