Well, well, well...
I found this quiz on another site and thought I'd share it here. What can I say... it was "in print" so I believed it. The moreso because I don't have a high opinion of politicians.
So I posted it here.... then I decided to go see where it came from to see the corrobative details.
But there are none.
This "quiz" is 10 years old.
Is It NBA Or NFL?
have been accused of spousal abuse
have been arrested for fraud
have been accused of writing bad checks
have directly or indirectly
bankrupted at least 2 businesses
have done time for assault
get a credit card due to bad credit
have been arrested on drug-related charges
have been arrested for shoplifting
are defendants in lawsuits, and
have been arrested for drunk driving in the last year
Can you guess which organization this is?
Give up yet? . . Scroll down,
it's the 435 members of the
United States Congress
The point I'm making is that I think most people who see these types of "quizzes" distributed - with no authors name, no dates on them, no links so people can go see the proof for themselves - are all too often believed. It doesn't even occur to people to verify the facts for themselves - whether it be about politicians, or the actors and actresses whose doings so many people are obsessed over...
On the other hand...it certainly wouldn't surprise me to find out that a goodly percentage of our 435 members of congress did have some of those charges hanging over them... after all the vast majority of them are lawyers....
