Rep. Paul Broun on Watchdog Group's 'Corrupt' List

A perusal of a Washington, D.C. watchdog group's website puts one member of the Georgia Congressional delegation in a negative light.

The group known as C.R.E.W., or Citizens for Responsibility and Ethics in Washington, listed Rep. Paul Broun (R-Athens) on its annual list for the second consectutive time.

The online article puts Broun on the "most corrupt members of Congress" list.

The C.R.E.W. report says Broun's listing stems from his "failure to disclose the true source and terms of his campaign loans."

According to the report,  when Broun originally ran for his congressional seat in 2007, he reported making personal loans without interest to his campaign. In 2010, his campaign reported making more than $30,000 in interest payments to Broun, the report said.

Broun is among 13 members of Congress on the report. Four Democrats and nine Republicans are listed. The only Georgian on the list is Congressman Broun. It also includes Senate Minority Leader Mitch McConnell of Kentucky and former presidential candidate Michele Bachmann of Minnesota.
