C is For Congress
Of course some of members of congress are corrupt. The amount of money available to them are huge and we are all human.
Still, Nancy Pelosi's promise of the cleanest congress ever, smacks as arrogance. Especially when she pushed the candidacy to majority leader of one investigated in the Abscam investigation. Also, how about Alcee Hastings being tapped for leading the House Intelligence committee? Of course there is the case of William Jefferson (D-Louisiana).
