Can you imagine working for a 'company' that has a 635 employees and has the following employee statistics?

29 have been accused of spouse abuse.

7 have been arrested for fraud.

9 have been accused of writing bad cheques.

17 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 drink driving in the last year.


Can you guess who this is?

If we had names to go with the stats, that list would kick ass. Who's up for the research?

I can't believe that it took like 10 years for that old bit of news to hit the other side on the pond....I thought technology had improved somewhat. I did not realize that we were still using the Mayflower to transport internets back to the old country. Hey Vito, BTW, the stains on the blue dress were Clinton's.....And that thing with OJ, you ain't gonna believe it but he got off.

But, how many of them are repeat offenders? It could be someone who writes bad checks, has a bunch of DUIs, manslaughter, failure to save a drowning secretary, etc.

Honestly, for the house and senate that looks low..
ETA: only 21 pending lawsuits? And only 14 drug arrests? I'd expect more than 14 drug Convictions.
