Corruption: a growth industry

It's nice to see an article that points out just how widespread government corruption is today. You know what I mean. Good that the public is getting word of how bad the situation is.

The investigations are casting a long shadow. The FBI said that more than 600 agents were assigned to public corruption investigations and more than 2,000 investigations were underway at the federal, state and local levels.

Some observers said prosecutors and investigators viewed corruption as a growth industry at a time when the number of new cases of terrorism and corporate fraud was starting to slow.
