A Guide to the Worst Politicians in America

Suffice it to say that America has had its share of unethical politicians. From small-town mayors caught with their hands in the till all the way up to presidents caught with their hands elsewhere, this country seems to breed shameless politicos. Just in time for Independence Day, fifty writers and editors of the alternative press have joined together to name 53 of America's Worst Politicians, separating them into five categories: hatemongers, sleazeballs, blowhards, users and boozers, and horn dogs. Leading the pack in that last category? Embattled El Paso County sheriff Terry Maketa, who allegedly had sex with not one, not two, but at least three underlings. Read all about it in "America's Worst Politicians."
