Now doesn't it seem like something this impactful, like knowing if our representatives did something wrong, should be transparent? Especially since there's no accountability for their actions. Here's a couple of openly corrupt representatives you might know who are just going along like nothing had happened:
"The House Committee on Standards of Official Conduct charged U.S. Representative Charles B. Rangel, a Democrat from New York, with 13 violations, including failing to pay taxes on rental income he received from his villa in the Dominican Republic. Also in that year, the Office of Congressional Ethics charged U.S. Rep. Maxine Waters, a Democrat from California, with allegedly using her office to provide assistance to a bank in which her husband owned stock to ask for federal government bailout money."
Waters did a lot of things that demonstrates she has no integrity in order to make she and her husband rich. Everyone knows it, but apparently pretty much everyone has dirt on one person or another in D.C., so nothing is ever done. These representatives are supposed to be some of the best among us but it's yet another reminder that power seems to corrupt some members of both parties.
