The Washingtonian is looking back at its best and worst political predictions of the decade.
One highlight stands out:
Our 2010 “Best & Worst of Congress” put Aaron Schock in the number two slot for “most likely to star in a scandal.” And did he ever deliver.
Schock resigned in 2015 after reporters discovered he had been inappropriately using government and campaign funding to pay for workout DVDs, Super Bowl tickets, and (thank you gods of chaos) a Downton Abbey-inspired redecoration of his congressional office.
There are some takes from that year that have not aged as well. Among them, Lindsey Graham nabbing the number two pick for “least partisan,” and Amy Klobuchar securing the number three spot for “funniest.”
