Report: NYers 3 of 6 most corrupt House members


Citizens for Responsibility & Ethics in Washington has a new list out that labels three New York lawmakers among the six most corrupt House members.

Democratic Rep. Tim Bishop of Southampton on the East End of Long Island is listed as No. 2.

Republican Rep. Michael Grimm of Staten Island is No. 5.

And Democratic Rep. Gregory Meeks of Queens is No. 6.

CREW’s report comes the same day a new New York poll by Quinnipiac found a majority of those surveyed want Gov. Andrew Cuomo to put out another fire — corruption among members of the state Legislature.

Not to mention their history of having a political agenda closely aligned with that of their donors. See my full article on CREW and irresponsible journalism here:
