Harry Reid
A career politician, Dingy Harry Reid was a diminutive boxer during his school years. The Nevada Senator has been entangled with many corrupt and criminal figures over the years, yet has somehow avoided jail. Most recently, his bagman was sentenced to jail in 2013 for illegally funneling money to Reid's campaign account. As usual, the press gave Reid a good leaving-alone, and he remained at his post as Senate Majority Leader.

In many countries, the government makes sure your employer takes out every penny. Many countries don't file income tax returns. Why? [We have withholding here too, don't we?] Pardon me. [Withholding?] With some programs, yes. But I'm talking about in some countries, European countries as an example, you don't file an income tax return. There is no need to because your employer takes all the money out. That's the difference between a voluntary and involuntary system.”
