17. George Ryan the Jailbird
Highest Office Held: Governor of Illinois
George Ryan's big move after politics was straight to prison. Ryan was involved in a number of investigations regarding bribes he took in exchange for allowing unqualified truck drivers to obtain trucking licenses.
You'd think his shenanigans would give him a higher rank on the list, as his entire post-political career has been spent in prison, but he had the good sense not to take to the streets and late-night talk shows proclaiming innocence like a number of other disgraced politicos.
He should be getting out later this year; we'll keep you posted on any forthcoming reality shows.
