List of Bush Officials Indicted, Convicted, Investigated, Etc.

They are doing God’s work over at TPMmuckraker. They’ve thrown together a list of the Bush Adminstration officials who have been indicted, convicted, forced to resign due to scandal, or bumped from the nomination process due to ethical problems. We highly recommend checking it out. It’s a long list, topped, of course, by Scooter Libby, but in total there are only 26 names.

In contrast, consider this quote, from Sleepwalking Through History: America in the Reagan Years: “By the end of his term, 138 Reagan administration officials had been convicted, had been indicted, or had been the subject of official investigations for official misconduct and/or criminal violations.”

Don’t worry, George! You only need 112 more convictions, indictments, or resignations-in-disgrace to catch up to your role model. That’s only 4.5 per month for the last 25 months of your presidency. With a Democratic Congress, you might have an outside chance!
