Guess Which City Won Award For Most Corrupt City In America…Hint: It’s Not Washington
A new report conducted by the University of Illinois at Chicago has ranked American cities to determine which city is the most corrupt city in America.
And the winner is….
Chicago, Illinois…aka The Windy City
It’s called the windy city because of the high winds that come from the nearby lake, but it should be noted as well that there is a lot of hot air that comes from the mouths and butts of the politicians of the city.
According to CBS Chicago,
Drawing information from the Department of Justice, the report shows 25 public figures were convicted of charges tied to corruption in 2017 in the City of Chicago and the northern third of Illinois. 2017 was the most recent year for which the DOJ data was available, the report says.
More than 30 Chicago City Council members have been tied to corruption cases since the 1970’s, with Ald. Edward Burke (14th) becoming the latest Chicago politician to make headlines after being charged with one count of attempted extortion on Thursday, Jan. 3 for allegedly trying to use his power on the City Council to solicit business for his private law firm.
The charge against Burke, Chicago’s most powerful and longest-running City Council member, comes on the heels of two FBI raids carried out in his offices late last year. After serving the city’s Southwest Side for 50 years, the charge puts Burke on the ever-growing list of disgraced city officials.
While Chicago accounts for 82 percent of the total corruption in the state of Illinois, the state itself actually ranks 3rd for the most corrupt state.
The most corrupt state based on per-capita numbers, but overall California, Florida, New York, and Texas all have more public convictions that Illinois though they ranked lower on a per-capita basis.
It should come as no surprise when we think of who all has come from Chicago; Blagojevich, Immanuel, Jones, Obama, Carothers, Reynolds, etc.
