The Usual Suspects, and Then Some

Abby Zimet

The ever-industrious Citizens For Responsibility and Ethics in
Washington (CREW) has issued its fifth annual report on Congressional corruption,
highlighting 15 people - down from last year's 24 - who have done low
things in high places, usually to benefit themselves or their friends
and families. Some on the list - Roland Burris and John Ensign - are
unsurprising, and deserve worse; others - Maxine Waters and Jesse
Jackson Jr. - disappoint.


FRIENDS: Help Us Fight

Independent journalism has become the last firewall against government and corporate lies. Yet, with frightening regularity, independent media sources are losing funding, closing down or being blacked out by Google and Facebook. Never before has independent media been more endangered. If you believe in Common Dreams, if you believe in people-powered independent media, please support us now and help us fight—with truths—against the lies that would smother our democracy. Please help keep Common Dreams alive and growing. Thank you. -- Craig Brown, Co-founder
