Skip to comments.Ten Most Corrupt Politicians of 2010 (feel free to add to the list)
Posted on 12/27/2010 9:31:24 AM PST by khnyny
It's that time of the year when numerous organizations and news outlets publish or announce their "Best of..." or "Worst of..." or "Most important of..." or "Most popular of..." lists. Not to be outdone by the so-called elite media, below is a list from an industrious public-interest group whose sole mission is to investigate and prosecute government corruption wherever it is discovered. On Thursday, Judicial Watch released its 2010 list of Washington's Ten Most Wanted Corrupt Politicians. While there may be some surprises, readers will note that neither political party has a monopoly on political corruption. Special thanks to Judicial Watch's Jill Farrell for providing the Law Enforcement Examiner with a comprehensive list of men and women deserving of recognition for their corrupt ways or illegal activities.
The list, in alphabetical order, includes: Senator Barbara Boxer (D-CA), Rahm Emanuel, Former Obama White House Chief of Staff, Senator John Ensign (R-NV), Rep. Barney Frank (D-MA), Rep. Jesse Jackson, Jr. (D-IL), President Barack Obama, Rep. Nancy Pelosi (D-CA), Rep. Charles Rangel (D-NY), Rep. Hal Rogers (R-KY), and Rep. Maxine Waters (D-CA).

Bill Richardson, DDDDDDDDDDDDDDDDDDD, New Mexico
Oh the irony of “drain the swamp”; the vast majority are libtard idiots..... =.=
I'll put money on THAT number.
And if that's true ... WHY is everyone afraid to speak of armed revolution?
Talk has done no good ... and they know it.
No list seems complete without Pennsylvania Governor Fast Eddie Rendell. Thank the Lord only days to go till he heads back to Philly.
We could eliminate anyone in the democrat party, and half of the GOP.
John Murtha died in Feb 2010. He deserves to be on the list for his corruption, disgraceful behavior towards the military ... and how about giving aid and comfort to our enemy during a time of war?
No Harry Reid?
What’s up with that?
Chuck Schumer...receiving money from Fannie Mae.
Norfolk mayor Paul Fraim.
political corruption bump for later..........
Oops, guess I should’ve looked at the article. He’s on the list.
In that case Jesse Jackson Jr.
That were caught. The one's that are best at their craft haven't been identified.
The 100 members of the US Senate who recently passed Monsanto’s food bill “by unanimous consent”.
He just has to be dirty, for the most corrupt to be creating a "leadership" position for him.
This leadership team will create the most honest, most open, and most ethical Congress in history
- Speaker-elect Nancy Pelosi
Bernie Sanders of Vermont comes to mind. He endlessly bellyaches about tax cuts for billionaires. He wants to confiscate the extra income of anyone making more than 200k to put it into net loss “green jobs” windmills and solar collectors. The workers in these government dependent black holes for money would then ostensibly vote for leftists like Sanders.
Europe has already tried what Sanders wants. It does not work. Oddly enough, Sanders points to northern Europe as his model of what the US should be like. The truth is that conservatism is on the rise in most of the places Sanders tries to emulate.
Yes, dingy Harry should definitely be included...
For those outside of the Norfolk, VA area, HRT is a crime syndicate that is bringing "light rail" to the city of Norfolk. Criminals, through and through.
Nothing light about light rail at all. Bureaucrats feeding at the trough. High costs, thievery, graft, corruption, etc.
My personal favorite is the hush money paid to Michael Townes. I just hope criminal charges are filed so that he spills the beans. I have put in a request to the FBI to investigate.
Good grief, there’s not enough bandwidth on all of FR, is there?!
Missed my two personal favorites:
Both on the take IMHO
Yeah, I know Ensign is a sleeze who couldn't keep his dick out of a woman who wasn't his wife. But given his ample company in Washington, I hardly see where that alone qualifies him to make the list of top 100 crooked politicians, let alone the top 10.
As for, Rogers, I had to look him up. His porcine accomplishments make him a mere pissant compared to the late John Murtha. Yes, it is a shame he got promoted to chair the appropriations committee. But who is he replacing?
Even if you must have a token GOP or two on the list, I can think of far better candidates than these two pissants of sleeze without breaking a sweat.
I would like to add ALL democrats and ALL republicans
..... get the politicians out and put businessmen in
Bernie isn’t so much corrupt as he is ignorant and stupid. He’s just an aging, demented European Socialist/Marxist who has “penis envy” when it comes to those who have been more successful than he has. Unfortunately, a Top Ten list isn’t nearly large enough to include those who are supremely destructive of our county. Now, a Top Ten Defenders of the Constitution would be more meaningful in that it would be difficult to get the list filled out!
In a related story; the award for the smelliest skunk goes to.......
Jim DeMint, #1.
The list would be shorter.
I mean they found $500,000 is his bank account that he could not explain.
1. “Play Misty for Me” Moo-cowski. There’s no telling how much leftwing money went into her primary and write-in campaign.
2. brocko himself. The unspent stimulus (while bludgeoning more billions out of the taxpayer for benefit-grubbing unemployment layabouts), in the hundreds of billions, slushed around and bought votes, and is sitting there ready to do it again. Now THAT’s corruption of the first order.
Then there’s the dropped prosecution of ACORNhole thugs, while taking up a lawsuit against a law-abiding Arizona.
3. 3J (Jess Jackson Junior). We’ve only seen the tip of his corruption iceberg (and yet he still occupies the speaker-pro-tem slot more often than just about anyone else.
3. Those SOBs from Bell, CA, City Council.
No way John Ensign and Hal Rogers deserve to be in the top 10 or probably top 100 most corrupt.
Unless you have hundreds of thousands of like minded people in the streets with you an armed revolution will never happen.
The FED will WACO your ass so fast your head will spin if it's just you and a few hundred friends.

Eddie Bernice Johnson D-TX
Longtime Dallas congresswoman Eddie Bernice Johnson has awarded thousands of dollars in college scholarships to four relatives and a top aide’s two children since 2005, using foundation funds set aside for black lawmakers’ causes.
The recipients were ineligible under anti-nepotism rules of the Congressional Black Caucus Foundation, which provided the money. And all of the awards violated a foundation requirement that scholarship winners live or study in a caucus member’s district.
Johnson, a Democrat, denied any favoritism when asked about the scholarships last week. Two days later, she acknowledged in a statement released by her office that she had violated the rules but said she had done so “unknowingly” and would work with the foundation to “rectify the financial situation.”
Governor Jim Doyle (D) outgoing governor of Wisconsin.
He tried to renew a union labor contract after the election and two democrats that were also defeated voted against the scumbag governor and his gift to the union failed.
The Republicans are in control now in Wisconsin.
Harry paid the author to be taken of the list...
The list would be too long...how listing politicians that are not corrupt.
Actually, I’m a little hurt that John Conyers (Progressive-Detroit) and his entire family don’t comprise a large portion of this list.
