21. They "stay on" because no one is willing to challenge them

and also, under the current way things work in Washington, as an elected official you have to be constantly raising money at receptions and dinners and events held for you or you don't get access to committee chairmanships, further funding, or even the congressional dining room. They spend several hours of every working day raising money on our dime instead of actually working for their constituents, the only people they work for and pay attention to are the ones who sponsor their fundraising efforts. They have a dollar quota they have to meet.
