Rep. Rick Renzi (R-AZ)

Rep. Renzi was indicted with a 35-count charge of conspiracy, wire fraud, money laundering, extortion and insurance fraud. One major charge against Renzi was a dubious business relationship with a business partner that he had multiple financial deals with, including “land swap” deals that allowed his friend to sell his land for $4.5 Million (MUCH more than he paid) because of legislation Renzi introduced in the house concerning the land.

On August 23rd, 2007 Renzi announced he would not run for re-election, because of the charges of impropriety.
