Top 10 Ethics Scandals of 2009 (CREW, 12/24/09)

The "holiday wishes" of Citizens for Responsibility and Ethics in Washington (CREW) betray a naive belief in the prospect of Washington reforming itself without radical change in the whole approach to government. And in the wake of reading this article -- -- I think they may have missed the biggest ethics scandal of all, although in their defense calling it a 2009 scandal would be a bit of a stretch since it's evidently been going for over a decade. Nevertheless, it's nice to see a year-end ethics scandal roundup of this sort to help keep some of the miscreants sweating in the spotlight.
