Interesting Fact

Can you imagine working for a company that has a little more than 500 employees and has the following statistics:

* 29 have been accused of spousal abuse * 7 have been arrested for fraud * 19 have been accused of writing bad checks * 117 have directly or indirectly bankrupted at least 2 businesses * 3 have done time for assault * 71 cannot get a credit card due to bad credit * 14 have been arrested on drug-related charges * 8 have been arrested for shoplifting * 21 are currently defendants in lawsuits * 84 have been arrested for drunk driving in the LAST YEAR... Can you guess which organization this is? Give up yet?

It's the 535 members of the United States Congress.

Kell, seriously, this is all true???? How on earth did these people get into office? Uh, dumb question ... we voted them in!

Sadly, it's true.

The 84 that were stopped for drunk driving were released after they claimed Congressional immunity.

Isn't that lovely?
