Most of them are already millionaires from their regular jobs and bribes

Isakson and Chamblis are the senators, georgia has a bunch of representatives though. Two Scotts, Lewis, and Kingston I know off the top of my head.

Do you know anything about their salaries or business lives to accuse them of bribery?
Sure, be wary of politicians, but it's just as naive to assume they're corrupt by default.

Politicians have their own way of making lodes o' money from lobbying by corporations to pass legislatives that benefit them, or simply give an evocative speech that boosts the value of the corporations stock, which they might in turn own.
It's hard to truly pinpoint corruption to a single politician at times, but looking at the way they push for something that benefits a company might be very telling.

So are we assuming all politicians are corrupt and immoral?
Of course, some are, but assuming this of all politicians is a naive, unproductive pessimism.

But it's also fair to assume that if they weren't corrupt, they wouldn't have gotten their jobs in the first place. Someone willing to bribe a few people would've.
