[BUMP] This list has seen many new additions since I first posted it 4-26.
The ever-expanding list of Republicans mired in scandal, just in the past year.
If the Democratic party did this much crap over a 10 year period it would be another 10 years before I'd even consider voting for anyone in the party again...

Please steal this list. Email it. Post it. Let it be known.
Did I miss anyone? Any new developments? Also, please leave me a comment to let me know if any of the links are dead. (Look for this list to be updated frequently. I've added 3 more names within 2 hours of first posting it)
I have been trying to keep up with it all, and as you can see it's been no small task, and this list only includes those Governors, Federal and Executive Branch officials mired in scandals that I can put a name to. It doesn't (yet?) include anyone connected to the NH Phone-Jamming election tampering, Misuse of intel to lead us to war (SSCI phase II), failures of Katrina, illegal domestic spying/wiretapping scandals, or the rest of the players in the CIA leak case.
Clearly the entire Republican party is morally bankrupt. It's no wonder the GOP-led Congress refuses to do any oversight on the Executive branch. They are all up to their waists in deep shit themselves. Those members not already mired in scandal are just as guilty by their complacency in not ever standing up and asking for hearings and oversight on those that are.
I can't even imagine how mentally or ethically challenged someone would have to be to actually vote for any Republican this November, unless they are just so uninformed that they have no business voting in the first place.
It's just so confusing trying to keep up with one scandal after another. I hope this list will bring some clarity, remind everyone just how bad things really are, and help keep any of these from slipping through the cracks.
