Most Corrupt? Duh!
- A former Chicago alderman turned political science professor/corruption fighter has found that Chicago is the most corrupt city in the country.
He cites data from the U.S. Department of Justice to prove his case. And, he says, Illinois is third-most corrupt state in the country.
University of Illinois professor Dick Simpson estimates the cost of corruption at $500 million.
Now add in Cook County and Illinois corruption in general and you can see why this entire section of the Midwest is circling the drain.
