"Worst Week in Washington" winner: Zoe Lofgren!

As Rep. Charlie Rangel continues to twist in the ethical wind, we named Rep. Zoe Logren, the California Democrat tasked with conducting the trial into alleged wrongdoings by the New York Congressman, as our "Worst Week in Washington" winner.

We write in the dead-tree edition of the Post:

"Like a narc (the Fix loved "21 Jump Street" back in the day) or a hall monitor, sometimes doing your job makes you the least popular kid in school. For the foreseeable future -- or until Rangel cuts a deal, thus ending the prospect of a congressional trial -- that role will be played by Lofgren."

Thanks to everyone for their submissions. And, if your pick didn't win this week, there's always next week!
