CREW's eighth report on congressional corruption names 20 members of Congress -- 12 members who engaged in serious misconduct and 8 members whose misdeeds earned them a dishonorable mention. Most members on CREW's list violated the law and all flagrantly ignored the rules. For the majority, there have been few consequences.

There was no shortage of candidates for CREW's list this year, and 11 of the 20 members are joining it for the first time.
