With perks like these, you’d think the folks in Congress wouldn’t beat baseball up over steroids and stuff as often as they do. I mean really, isn’t a bribe worth anything in Washington anymore?
Tickets for Wednesday’s World Series game are nearly impossible to come by at face value. But that isn’t the case if you are a member of Congress or one of their aides.

Major League Baseball and the teams sell a limited number of prime seats to lawmakers and congressional aides at face value, often hundreds of dollars less than the going rate.
