    Question This has to be a hoax...right?

    FUNNY & SAD AT THE SAME TIME
    Can you imagine working for a company that has a little more than 500
    employees and has the following statistics:
    29 have been accused of spousal abuse
    7 have been arrested for fraud
    19 have been accused of writing bad checks
    117 have directly or indirectly bankrupted at least 2 businesses
    3 have done time for assault
    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 are currently defendants in lawsuits
    84 have been arrested for drunk driving in the last year
    Can you guess which organization this is?





    Give up yet?






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

    Now I recieved this in an e-mail today, There was no reference to support any of this.
    Does anyone here have any reference info to support any of this?

    This has got to be false and deceptive information...isn't it?
    I have a question; are you the bug, or the windshield?

    WOW! That is too funny! ROFLMAO. Let us know if you find a source to verify if this is true or not. I haven't heard anything about it.
    Opinions are like holes - everybody\'s got\'em.

    I have heard rumors that things like that are true. In one of the U.S. Government classes I'm currently taking, our instructor read off some statements similar to those posted here. I was apalled to learn that many of the things, such as drunk driving and spousal abuse, are true! That's crazy. Should these people really be representing us?

    Umm, after doing a little bit of research, none of them have been arrested or charged with drunk driving within the last year. Some of those are true, but most of them are false.

    i hate to sound like a conspiracy theorist, but it is possible that they were pulled over and it just never made the papers, records etc because they dont want the masses to know their leaders are breaking their own laws.
    i have a feeling that a lot of them think that since they make the laws, they are above them.
    just like water off a duck\'s back... I AM HERE.

    Hi
    I will try to find it. By the way this same bit of news was reported in one of the sunday newspapers about six months ago just before a local election. So i suspect some body of using it to discredit the ANC
