It will be interesting to see how much corruption the voters will elect.
Dana Rohrabacher (R-CA), who has been regularly lampooned as “Putin’s favorite congressman,” has seen his travel and hearing requests get drastically curtailed over fears that he has been compromised by Russian intelligence agencies.

The Daily Beast reports that Rohrabacher had to pay for his own recent trip to London to meet with WikiLeaks founder Julian Assange after his request to have taxpayers foot the bill was denied by the House Committee on Foreign Affairs. The committee placed new restrictions on Rohrabacher’s travel in the wake of his willingness to push pro-Kremlin propaganda at official congressional hearings, as well as his public embrace of Assange.

“His committee travel and hearing requests were curtailed following news accounts of his outside-the-box interest in Russia,” the congressman’s spokesperson explained to the Daily Beast.

The Daily Beast reported earlier this year that Rohrabacher was given instructions by Russian intelligence officials on how to alter sanctions legislation and to set up “a virtual show trial on Capitol Hill” last June, right at around the time that Donald Trump Jr. and key members of the Trump campaign met with Russian nationals who claimed to be representatives of the Russian government’s efforts to undermine the candidacy of Democratic nominee Hillary Clinton.

Nonpartisan analysts say the race for Dana Rohrabacher's House seat representing Orange County is now a toss-up.

Rohrabacher (R-Costa Mesa) faces more than 10 opponents in the 48th District, most of them Democrats. He is running for a 16th term in the 2018 midterm election.

Rohrabacher joins Reps. Darrell Issa of Vista, Steve Knight of Palmdale and Jeff Denham of Turlock among California Republican incumbents whose chances of reelection are rated toss-ups, according to analysts for Larry J. Sabato’s Crystal Ball at the University of Virginia Center for Politics.
