Living high on the hog at your expense

Why is it that some public figures, once in a position of power - simply want more of everything? More power, influence, money, sex, or even drugs. Also, how often do you later find out that it has all actually been at your expense?

You may even be able to forgive some of them, but please never forget what they've done. How else can we learn from our past mistakes, in helping elect them? That's where we come in. We're providing a one stop shop where you can find news stories about troughers, both old and new.
