A list of all corrupt Congressmen, with photos where possible. Here you'll find Congressional members with criminal records, a description of their illegal activity, and when applicable, their sentencing or time served in jail. Common trangressions for the U.S. Congressmen and congress women on this list are bribery, tax evasion, fraud, use of misappropriated funds, and possession of illegal drugs. For some, breaking the law was the end of their politcal career, but a suprising number of these disgraced politicians somehow managed to rebound.Some of these politicians may have committed crimes that had nothing to do with their political careers. That said, we expect our lawmakers to be the most law-abiding citizens among us, and when they are not, it can be hard to view them as role models or worthy representatives of the citizens they serve.
