Corruption problems for Dems

There’s a long list of prominent Democrats under an ethical cloud, even if you set aside those who merely cheated on their taxes: Blagojevich (former Illinois governor), Richardson (New Mexico governor), Adams (Portland mayor), Perez (Hartford mayor), Kilpatrick (Detroit mayor), Dixon (Baltimore mayor), Dodd (Connecticut senator), Rangel (New York congressman), Murtha (Pennsylvania congressman), Moran (Virginia congressman), Visclosky (Illinois congressman).  To that you could add Cyril Wecht (Allegheny County coroner), and (obviously) William “cold cash” Jefferson.

Republicans have trouble too, of course, but most of theirs have been turned out of office.  On the Democratic side they’re not even losing committee chairmanships.
