In total, the chart shows twenty-three lawmakers (21 congressmen and 2 senators) currently involved in a scandal. Most of these lawmakers are currently under investigation by either a congressional ethics body or the Department of Justice. In the case of Rep.

    You missed one–Rep. Loretta Sanchez is blazing a trail that reaches new lows, even for a congressperson. Her refusal to answer the mounting questions about her own adultery scandal (oh, much juicier than Sanford’s), demonstrates that she believes she has something to hide. If the allegations about her adultery with her married military escort were false, you can be sure she would have denied it by now. Instead, it is obvious that she has given strict instructions to her staff to stonewall all inquiries. Her conduct in using her official travel to pursue a relationship with a married officer is just as reprehensible as Sanford’s, yet the “mainstream” media refuses to investigate and report on it. This can only be explained by their desire to protect a cherished political ally, because apparently the public’s appetite for these political sex scandal stories is insatiable. Just look at the obsession with the Sanford case. What scandal? Just google: loretta sanchez scandal.
