Judicial Watch has names its top 10 most corrupt politicians of 2007 and its a who’s-who list of Democrats:

  • Senator Diane Feinstein (D-CA): …Feinstein reviewed military
    construction government contracts, some of which were ultimately
    awarded to URS Corporation and Perini, companies then owned by
    Feinstein’s husband, Richard Blum…
  • Governor Mike Huckabee (R-AR): …”[Huckabee’s] career has also
    been colored by 14 ethics complaints and a volley of questions about
    his integrity, ranging from his management of campaign cash to his use
    of a nonprofit organization to subsidize his income to his destruction
    of state computer files on his way out of the governor’s office…”
  • Senator Barack Obama (D-IL): …n 2007, more reports surfaced
    of deeper and suspicious business and political connections It was
    reported that just two months after he joined the Senate, Obama
    purchased $50,000 worth of stock in speculative companies whose major
    investors were his biggest campaign contributors. One of the companies
    was a biotech concern that benefited from legislation Obama pushed…
  • Rep. Nancy Pelosi (D-CA): …snuck a $25 million gift to her
    husband, Paul Pelosi, in a $15 billion Water Resources Development Act
    recently passed by Congress. The pet project involved renovating ports
    in Speaker Pelosi’s home base of San Francisco. Pelosi just happens to
    own apartment buildings near the areas targeted for improvement, and
    will almost certainly experience a significant boost in property value
    as a result of his wife’s earmark…
  • Senator Harry Reid (D-NV): …over the last four years, Reid
    has used his influence in Washington to help a developer, Havey
    Whittemore, clear obstacles for a profitable real estate deal. As the
    project advanced, the Times reported, “Reid received tens of thousands
    of dollars in campaign contributions from Whittemore.” Whittemore also
    hired one of Reid’s sons (Leif) as his personal lawyer…

Also on the list is Giuliani, Conyers, Craig, and Libby.

Its a sad day in our Capitol when a man like “Freezer” Jefferson can’t even break the top 10.  But seriously, you have to question Judicial Watch when they include Libby, a man whose memory was faulty and Craig, a man playing footsies in the local head but do not include the man who took bribes galore and hid bribe money in his freezer.

UPDATE

At least this women was voted the most annoying.
