WANT TO BE A MEMBER OF CONGRESS? THEN WORK FOR ONE

CONGRESS ORG - Since World War II, the number of seats in Congress occupied by former Congressional staffers has dramatically increased, with many in the positions once held by their former bosses.

In the current session of Congress alone, 75 one-time staffers are now members, according to CQ's Politics in America. Of this group, a survey by Congress.org found that over two dozen inherited the seats of retired Members they once worked for .

And at least six staffers are currently vying for seats in elections coming up this year.
