NOT WELL DONE Weldon Add one more name to our America's Dumbest Congressmen list: Rep. Curt Weldon (R-PA). The FBI raided the homes of Weldon's lawyer friend who did business in Russia and the Soviet Union, another friend who ran a public relations firm, and his daughter—she's a lobbyist whom authorities allege Weldon helped land lucrative deals, including $1 million contracts from two Russian energy firms and a Serbian family with ties to Slobodan Milosevic, the Philadelphia Inquirer reports.

"She is the only one I know of who went to the Justice Department and asked for an investigation," Weldon says in the Inquirer. "I know that because I have her letter."

Well, so does the world.
