Corruption “Widespread” in Illinois

A new poll finds that a whopping majority of state residents believe that not only state government but Illinois business is plagued by serious misconduct.

According to the survey of 1,271 registered voters by the Paul Simon Public Policy Institute at Southern Illinois University, 76.8 percent agree that “corruption in Illinois government is widespread.”

Awhile back there was a long article about why Illinois is so corrupt.  The bottom-line is that the people tolerate it.

Most people won’t tolerate someone stealing from them.  But in Illinois the people do.  My guess is that the school system is so bad that most folks don’t even realize that all the corruption costs them a boat-load of money.

People get what they vote.
