The Chronicles of Money, Politics, and the Supercommittee's "Dining" Options

Here's a recap of Public Campaign and Public Campaign Action Fund's (PCAF) work from September 19-September 23, 2011.

Most Corrupt Members of Congress

The Center for Responsibility and Ethics in Washington (CREW) has released their seventh annual Most Corrupt report, highlighting the most corrupt members of Congress. This year's report names "19 members of Congress – 14 members whose actions violated the law or who otherwise engaged in serious misconduct, and five others whose lack of regard for the rules earned them a dishonorable mention."

ETHICS COMPLAINT FILED: CREW alleges lawmakers who played hookie from swearing-in to attend fundraiser on Capitol grounds violated law, House rules

The Washington Post reports that Citizens for Responsibility and Ethics in Washington (CREW) has filed an ethics complaint against the two lawmakers who missed their swearing-in for the 112th Congress while attending a fundraiser, contending, among other things, that the two congressmen violated federal law and House rules by holding a fundraiser in the Capitol.

No Donor Left Behind

Citizens for Responsibility and Ethics in Washington (CREW) has highlighted some interesting information on President Bush's No Child Left Behind Reading First program. It would appear the Department of Education Inspector General, which has criticized the program on a number of occasions, is concerned that the quality of reading material available through the program is being compromised to favor corporate donors to Bush's campaign.
