Who knows what darkness lurks in man's minds?
Only the Shadow...

Good question.

Instead of polling readers, why don’t you set up a WAPO series including a database of the status of all these public official corruption cases. Just thinking back over all of the headlines, I would like to know the status of the investigations & prosecutions.

For example, the Rep with the freezer full of money; where is he now? Indicted, sentenced, reelected?

Honestly this would be a great service and then we could really answer the question you pose.

I believe we should all expect our Senators and Congressmen/women to put the needs of the nation ahead of local needs often called "pork." If we did, we might just see better performance from our legislative branch. Is this too idealistic?
