Description

Political scientists typically define corruption as the use or misuse of public office for either public or private gain. In your Unit 3 Discussion Board, one element you discussed was the potential for corruption with special interest groups. Political corruption leads to a lack of trust in public officials, hurts institutions that citizens may rely upon, and damages the view of the legitimacy of the political infrastructure (separation of powers, for example). Corruption and the perception of corruption often lead to apathy and dissatisfaction among the citizens. For the purposes of this paper, choose 2 news stories (from newspaper, radio, television, or Internet sources) that cover a well-documented case of political corruption. Explain the particulars of the corruption case you have chosen (place, date, a concise overview of case/example). How was the case of corruption revealed, and what were the consequences and the outcome of the case? Discuss the effects of the case and suggest accountability measures, such as checks and balances and the role of media. Use 2 substantive sources to support your analysis
