Crooked Politician

This time, a Democrat:
DETROIT - City Council member Monica Conyers, the wife of powerful Democratic congressman John Conyers, pleaded guilty Friday to accepting cash bribes in exchange for supporting a sludge contract with a Houston company.
It'll be interesting to see how much of this sticks to Rep. Conyers himself. He's been in Congress for 44 years, so the answer probably is "not much".

Did it nauseate you to type, "been in Congress for 44 years" as much as it did for me to read it?

Because God damn.

No wonder "congress" is the opposite of "progress."
