    Anonymous congressweasle pens tell all book

    'Screw the next generation' and 'Harry Reid's a pompous a**': Democratic congressman writes Anonymous tell-all book slamming 'nation of naive, self-absorbed sheep' as he admits he never reads bills he votes on
    • 'My main job is to keep my job, to get reelected. It takes precedence over everything,' an anonymous member of Congress writes in a new book
    • 'Voters are incredibly ignorant and know little about our form of government and how it works,' he writes
    • 'It's far easier than you think to manipulate a nation of naive, self-absorbed sheep who crave instant gratification'
    • The author is a Democrat in Congress who laid out his complaints to a long-time friend and former Capitol Hill staffer who edited them into a book
    • 'The Confessions of Congressman X' will be released May 24 by a small Minnesota-based 'vanity press' publisher
    A new book threatens to blow the lid off of Congress as a federal legislator's tell-all book lays out the worst parts of serving in the House of Representatives – saying that his main job is to raise money for re-election and that leaves little time for reading the bills he votes on.
    Mill City Press, a small Minnesota-based 'vanity press' publisher describes 'The Confessions of Congressman X' as 'a devastating inside look at the dark side of Congress as revealed by one of its own.'
    'No wonder Congressman X wants to remain anonymous for fear of retribution. His admissions are deeply disturbing.'
    The 84-page exposé is due in bookstores in two weeks, and Washington is abuzz with speculation about who may be behind it.
    The book, a copy of which DailyMail.com has seen, discloses that the congressman is a Democrat – but not much else.
    The anonymous spleen-venter has had a lot to say about his constituents, however.
    Robert Atkinson, a former chief of staff and press secretary for two congressional Democrats, took notes on a series of informal talks with him – whoever he is – and is now publishing them with his permission.
    'Voters claim they want substance and detailed position papers, but what they really crave are cutesy cat videos, celebrity gossip, top 10 lists, reality TV shows, tabloid tripe, and the next f***ing Twitter message,' the congressman gripes in the book.
    'I worry about our country's future when critical issues take a backseat to the inane utterings of illiterate athletes and celebrity twits.'
    Much of what's in the book will come as little surprise to Americans who are cynical about the political process.
    'Fundraising is so time-consuming I seldom read any bills I vote on,' the anonymous legislator admits. 'I don't even know how they'll be implemented or what they'll cost.'
    'My staff gives me a last-minute briefing before I go to the floor and tells me whether to vote yea or nay. How bad is that?'
    And on controversial bills, he says, 'I sometimes vote "yes" on a motion and "no" on an amendment so I can claim I'm on either side of an issue.'
    'It's the old shell game: if you can't convince 'em, confuse 'em.'
    The congressman laments that politics has become a matter of picking a team by the jerseys they wear rather than looking at the players underneath.
    'Things are so partisan today most folks vote the straight party line, even though they don't know s*** about who they're voting for. They just don't want the other guys to win,' he explains.
    And he seemingly takes a shot at the Bill and Hillary Clinton Foundation, noting how family philanthropies can be the beneficiaries of what amounts to bribes in exchange for legislative favors.
    'Some contributions are subtle,' he explains. 'Donations to a member's nonprofit foundation. Funding a member's charitable pet project. Offsetting the costs of a member's portrait to adorn the committee room he or she has so faithfully served.'
    'It's all a bunch of bulls*** to get around gift bans and limits on campaign contributions. Where there's a will, there's a way.'

    The mystery man reserves special scorn for Sen. Harry Reid, a Nevada Democrat who serves as Senate Minority Leader.

    'My main job is to keep my job, to get reelected. It takes precedence over everything,' an anonymous member of Congress writes in a new book set for May 24 release by a Minnesota publisher.

          Great guess, not really an establishment type of guy, Minnesota publisher too, but Franken is in the Senate and the article says theyou were in the House.

                    John Oliver does one of the best segments Ive ever seen on campaign fundraising. He did the math that the average Congressmen or Senator attends a fundraiser a day or more. I fully believe the Republican majorities have scheduled more vacation days than they ever have before, because they need more days just to fundraise.
