A primary loss for Rep. Alan Mollohan (D-WV), four times named one of the most corrupt members of Co

By CREW Staff

One of the most corrupt members of Congress, Alan Mollohan, lost in his primary today. Mollohan's ethics were an issue in the campaign:

Democrat Alan Mollohan's 28-year run in the House of Representatives is over.

With 71 percent of the precincts reporting, state Sen. Mike Oliverio had nearly 56 percent of the vote compared to Mollohan's 44 percent.

Tuesday's vote made Mollohan the first House incumbent in the country to lose his seat this year.

Mollohan was dogged by ethical questions, and the more conservative Oliverio ran an aggressive campaign portraying him as corrupt and disconnected.
