A Man's Got to Take Care of His Family

Today Ken Silverstein of Harpers.org gives a nice little update on the legal problems facing Congressman Rick Renzi, who is being investigated for accepting (and not reporting) $200,000 from an old business partner.

But is he being fair? KPC's crack researchers went to Renzi's website to get to the bottom of all this and found no mention of these so-called corruption allegations! What's more, at the bottom of his bio page, they learned that Rick "...and his wife Roberta are the proud parents of twelve children, seven boys and five girls."

That's only $14,286 per capita for the Renzi clan--not even minimum wage!
