CREW has compiled a list of Congress members likely under investigation by the Department of Justice (DOJ), the Committee on Standards of Official Conduct (House ethics committee), the Senate Select Committee on Ethics (Senate ethics committee) or the Office of Congressional Ethics (OCE). Due to the secrecy surrounding these investigative bodies, the list is compiled from press reports. Most recently, on October 30, 2009, The Washington Post revealed a leaked House ethics committee memo documenting the investigative activities surrounding House members by the House ethics committee and/or the OCE. The OCE was created in 2008 to review allegations of misconduct against members of the House and refers matters to the House ethics committee for further action. As a result, it is not always clear which body is investigating the Member.

I can't believe the list is not longer.
IL wins, we have one in both houses. Also, 4 of our last 8 governors have had corruption charges filed against them and 3 of the four (so far) have made it to club fed. The most recent one is just doing the talk show circuts.
We love us some corruption here, on both sides of the isle. We seem to have lost our title of most corrupt state, but most articles say "More corrupt than IL" or "Most corrupt state not IL" - there is shock and confusion that we are not the winners.
I'm not at all surprised to see Maxine Waters on the list.
And ther's no one from Louisiana on the list. Somebody ain't paying attention.
