Leading by “example”

By | January 18, 2007

Can you imagine working in the following company? It has a little over 500 employees with the following statistics:

117 have bankrupted at least two businesses
71 cannot get a credit card due to bad credit
29 have been accused of spousal abuse
21 have been named defendants in lawsuits
19 have been accused of writing bad checks

14 have been arrested on drug-related charges
7 have been arrested for fraud
8 have been arrested for shoplifting

3 have been arrested for assault
In 1998 alone, 84 were stopped for drunk driving

Can you guess which organisation this is?

Give up?

It’s the 535 members of the United States Congress. The same group that perpetually cranks out hundreds upon hundreds of new laws designed to keep Americans in line.
