They'd probably just invalidate the vote.

Don't waste your vote.

I knew a guy who use to write in himself or "Mickey Mouse," depending on his mood that day. Seems like a waste of a vote to me.

Pick the guy you are least disgusted with. The write to him a lot on issues that concern you.

Just vote for the new guy - no matter what. Yes, he's certainly a thief also, but he doesn't have the experience to take that much. After his term is over, vote in another.

Congress Approval Rate = 15%
Incumbents chance of REelection = 98%

Where's the disconnect, people?
