Two members have been removed from last year’s list of 13. Rep. Randy “Duke” Cunningham (R-CA) is now serving an eight-year jail term for bribery and Rep. Bob Ney (R-OH) has agreed to plead guilty to crimes that will likely result in a minimum two-year prison term.
CREW is funded in part by individuals who are members of the Democracy Alliance.
Democracy Alliance was founded by former Clinton Treasury official Rob Stein, Erica Payne and various donors in 2005.
"At least 80 wealthy liberals have pledged to contribute $1 million or more apiece to fund a network of think tanks and advocacy groups to compete with the potent conservative infrastructure built up over the past three decades," The Washington Post reported in August, 2005.
"Members of the Democracy Alliance include billionaires like George Soros and his son Jonathan Soros, former Rockefeller Family Fund president Anne Bartley, San Francisco Bay Area donors Susie Tompkins Buell and Mark Buell, Hollywood director Rob Reiner, Taco Bell heir Rob McKay ... as well as New York financiers like Steven Gluckstern."

Question is, who funds Citizens for Ethics?
These kinds of groups spring up quite a bit and are often funded by the supporters of a rival candidate, I'm not saying this is the case.. I'm not a fan of Santorum, I'm just saying that you should all be critical thinkers and not absorb everything you read without doing some background investigation ..
Usually goes like this.. I'm a corporation, I know that candidate A will do things I want him to do that will help my business, my lobbyists will succeed there, but Candidate B won't ... so I'm going to fund an organization called Citizens for All Things Awesome and we'll conduct a study that makes Candidate B look bad.
I tried looking up who owns the domain name but they have a private registration, their about us makes them seem legit and they HAVE apparently been around for a number of years.. so they may very well be reputable =) .. I don't really know ..
