Can you imagine working at the following Company?

It has a little over 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 bankrupted at least two businesses

- 3 have been arrested 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 shop-lifting

- 21 are current defendants in lawsuits

- In 1998 alone, 84 were stopped for drunk driving

Can you guess which organization this is?

Give up?

It's the 535 members of your United States Congress.

Editor's Note: I posted this joke back in 1999 and at the time I commented that I was trying to find out if it was true.

In 2014 I posted a variation of it asking if this is the NBA or the NFL 'cause 15 years later it's STILL making the rounds. Except in that time Fact Check came along and says it ain't so (see http://www.factcheck.org/2009/04/an-unlawful-congress/

But even if it isn't true, it's SO believable it's still fun.
