Politicians

UPDATE: Former Congressman, Michael Grimm, has been sentenced to 8 months in jail for tax fraud. And well, life definitely couldn't be more "Grim" for this guy. He did his best to plead for the mercy of the court but the judge didn't buy it saying to Grimm, "Your moral compass needs some reorientation." And that our friends, is what Rikers is for, or at least whichever country club prison he'll be going to. Original story follows...

In March of 2015 Iowa State Rep. Ross Paustian was caught reading 'Sex After Sixty" on the House floor. He later apologized for the incident but not before a photograph went viral. High five to Brianne Pfannenstiel of the Des Moines Register who took the picture! And, Mr. Paustian, so, how's the sex?

In January of 2015, A.J. Holloway, Mayor of Biloxi, Mississippi checked himself into an alcohol treatment program, aka rehab -- good for him!

On February 17, 2015 former Pennsylvania Treasurer Rob McCord pleaded guilty to two attempted extortion charges. Being a former treasurer, it sounds like extortion was right up his alley! This guy knows money! Next skill to master - making license plates.

After having been found guilty on September 4, 2015 on charges of public corruption, former Virginia Governor Robert McDonnell has finally been sentenced.  On January 6, 2015 he was ordered to serve two years in federal prison.

Ever been caught playing Candy Crush in the middle of an important meeting? Well, this British politician has. And the scandal is oh so sweet! Although definitely not the biggest story we have ever broken here on Into Rehab, it still seems rather unfitting for a such a stately politician to be playing Candy Crush during a committee discussion on pension reform and the insurance industry.
