Today, Citizens for Responsibility and Ethics in Washington (CREW) released its first-ever analysis of the misuse of power by all members of the Senate to financially benefit their family members. The analysis covers the 2002, 2004 and 2006 election cycles. The new report, Family Affair - Senate, names 87 senators from all 50 states: 42 Democrats, 43 Republicans and 2 Independents.
To view the report, please visit the Family Affair- Senate website page.
In light of several well publicized cases of members of Congress using their positions to enrich their family members, in June, 2007 CREW released Family Affair - House, which examined the 337 members of the House of Representatives in top leadership positions and the chairs and ranking members of House committees and subcommittees. CREW has now applied the same analysis to the Senate.
