Chicago can't hold a candle to Miami for corruption

Dan_in_Cincinnati's picture

Some people are now saying that Chicago is the most corrupt city in the USA.  Puleeeeeze.   


The economy of South Florida was founded by pirates and real estate scam artists.  To say that the Toddling Town could compete with the Magic City when it comes to graft, corruption and all forms of skulduggery is absurd.  Nevertheless I will quote from Slate magazine in the spirit of fairness:


  "How do we know that Chicago's so corrupt? The most straightforward way to measure corruption is to check the number of convicted local officials. Between 1995 and 2004, 469 politicians from the federal district of Northern Illinois were found guilty of corruption. The only districts with higher tallies were central California (which includes L.A.), and southern Florida (which includes Miami). Eastern Louisiana (and New Orleans) rank somewhat further down the list."
