Perhaps some substantiation is called for. Here is a primer.
Click here for a December 9, 2008 MSNBC article, “Illinois has a long legacy of public corruption.”
Click here for a December 11, 2008 Time article, “A Brief History of Illinois Corruption.”
Click here for a December 13, 2008 Slate article, “Which state is the most crooked, Illinois or Louisiana?”
Click here for a December 15, 2008 Wall Street Journal article, “Obama was mute on Illinois corruption.” Ironically, our President later lectured Hamid Karzai about cleaning up Afghanistan’s government corruption.
A corrupt government cannot stop government corruption. Only the voters can.
