Buying Congress

  • October 26, 2009

    Buying Congress through campaign contributions has always been a common activity in Washington, but at least in the past it was somewhat hidden.

    Rep. Peter Viclosky (IN) obviously skipped that part of the new member training when he was elected to office.
