Acts of Corruption: OpenSecrets.org

Please provide opinion on the following:

Visit the OpenSecrets.org Web site. This site is an example of a “watchdog” site. The site’s authors look for improper dealings in government and report them.

Look through the site and find an example of something that you believe is improper or corrupt. Describe it.

Are these examples of actual corruption or just examples of politics as usual? Whose job do you think it should be to monitor public officials for possible corruption? Do you think there should be a law preventing people with certain crimes in their past from running from public office? Why?
