36 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, 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

84 have been arrested for drunk driving within the last year

Can you guess which organization this is? NBA? NFL?

Give up? It's Neither.

It's the 535 members of the United States Congress.

The same group who crank out hundreds of new laws each year designed to keep US in line.

Are we in trouble or what?
