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."
NARRATOR: 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: Nevada's own Steven Horsford.
Few have worked harder to earn this dishonor.
Parking in a handicap space? Yep.
ANCHOR: "It is perfectly reasonable to expect our lawmakers to follow the same rules they ask us to live by."
REPORTER: "The lot, she said, was full. Including all the handicap spaces and more."
NARRATOR: Secret trips abroad with lobbyists? Oh yes.
REPORTER: From the Youtube videos, the Pokerstars annual conference in the Bahamas looks like a lot of fun.
News 4 confirmed the corporation paid for Senate Majority Leader Steven Horsford to attend the 2010 event.
In fact, a News 4 search of records detailing lobbyist gifts doesn't reveal any of the trips.
NARRATOR: Selling access? Absolutely.
A 2010 investigation by the Review-Journal revealed that Horsford was selling private meetings with lawmakers in exchange for donations, calling it a ""new low in Nevada politics".
Nevadans deserve a candidate that plays by the same rules they do.
Nevadans deserves better than Steven Horsford.
