3 have done time for assault

71, repeat 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 currently are defendants in lawsuits. and

84 have been arrested for drunk driving in the last year Can you guess which organization this is?



Give up yet? . . . Scroll down, citizen!














It's the 535 members of the U.S. Congress. The same group of idiots that crank out hundreds of new laws each year designed to keep the rest of us in line.
