Corrupt Democrats

Disgraced politicians come in all shapes and sizes. No matter what your political affiliation, this list of corrupt Democrats proves that no party is safe from corruption. These are Democratic politicians with criminal records; they have been found guilty in a court of law. The United States is a republic, which means law is king. So to be a politician and get convicted of breaking the law is to be utterly corrupt. Fortunately for these politicians, most of them seem to have dodged the political graveyard, and many disgraced politicians have managed to rebound.

Criminal politics is nothing new, and fortunately some of these politicians may have committed crimes that had nothing to do with their political careers. That said, our lawmakers should support the law more-so than any of us. Some of these politicians have even been in prison. If politicians in jail don't make you want to give up on the whole democratic process, perhaps nothing will.
 
Who are the most corrupt Democrats? This list takes a look at all disgraced Democrats who have gotten in trouble with the law, so we can find them (and shame them) all in one place.
