Why are so many congressional that get into ethics scandals either very old senior Democrats or young rising Republicans? They always seem to be either a Charlie Rangel or Chaka Fatah-type, or a
 Michael Grimm/Aaron Schock type (of course Hunter too). Just a coincidence?
It can happen to senior Republicans too: Ed Whitfield for example.

Or Duke Cunningham from the 2002-2012 version of CA-50 (which became CA-52 in 2012).
