The Crook List

Aren't we all ... - WonketteBecause we're all about "service journalism," you can guess what happened after we read this e-mail:


With today's guilty plea of Les Crawford, I have now officially lost count how many Bush administration/Congressional Republicans have been indicted/convicted/abruptly resigned "to spend more time with their families." Any chance that you could pull together the full, exhaustive list for the rest of us? Thanks in advance.
No, Steve L., thank you. This is just the kind of numbingly banal work we were meant to do. Join us after the jump, for The List.
