Democrats Lead, 12 to 4 . . . in Members of Congress Under Investigation

If you have been thinking to yourself, “I wonder how many members of Congress are under investigation,” the good folks at CREW decided to compile a list.

Democratic members of Congress: Sanford Bishop of Georgia, Jesse Jackson of Illinois, Allan Mollohan of West Virginia, John Murtha of Pennsylvania, Charlie Rangel of New York, Linda Sanchez of California, Loretta Sanchez of California, Pete Visclosky of Indiana.

Democratic Senators: Roland Burris of Illinois, Kent Conrad of North Dakota, Bob Menendez of New Jersey.

Republican members of Congress: Jerry Lewis of California, Garry Miller of California, Tim Murphy of Pennsylvania, Don Young of Alaska.

Republican Senators: None.

Having no members of the caucus under investigation seems like an impressive feat by Republican senators, but in defense of Democratic senators, there are a bunch more of them.
