How much truth lurks in forwarded emails?

Yeah, I know. Not much. But this one I liked, even if it is completely unverified. (And yes, even if it is all true, the numbers are probably just as bad anywhere else. I know. I just like to rank on the U.S. I think it can take it.)

Imagine working for a company of a little more than 500 employees with the following statistics:

29 have been accused of spousal abuse
7 have been arrested for fraud
19 have been accused of writing bad checks
117 have directly or indirectly bankrupted at least 2 businesses
3 have done time for assault
71 cannot get a credit card due to bad credit
14 have been arrested on drug-related charges
8 have been arrested for shoplifting
21 are currently defendants in lawsuits
84 have been arrested for drunk driving in the last year

Can you guess which organization this is?

It’s the 535 members of the United States Congress.

Thank you Dusty for that.
