Washington (CREW) has issued its fifth annual report on Congressional corruption,
highlighting 15 people - down from last year's 24 - who have done low

and families. Some on the list - Roland Burris and John Ensign - are
unsurprising, and deserve worse; others - Maxine Waters and Jesse
Jackson Jr. - disappoint.
