http://www.nrcc.org/corrupt-dems/ | When Nancy Pelosi promised to drain the swamp of unethical behavior in the House of Representatives, apparently that message didn't apply to her own conference and Democrat candidates. It's time to shine light on some of the worst offenders in this Democrat class. Over the next few weeks, the National Republican Congressional Committee will be identifying some of the "most corrupt Democrats of 2012."
From personal favors to cover ups, backroom deals to special trips. These are the 10 most corrupt Dems of 2012.
This week's Corrupt Democrat: Connecticut's Elizabeth Esty.
Esty says she knows where her contributions come from because she calls donors herself.
But who exactly is Esty calling for campaign cash?
Esty's husband is in charge of the Connecticut Department of Energy and Environmental Protection, the DEEP.
It turns out Esty has taken more than a hundred thousand dollars from corporations and lobbyists who are either regulated by her husband's agency, or may soon be.
Special interests, lobbyists, and insider deals. Sounds like just another Washington politician.
