Summary
Public funds spent on jets and horses. Shoeboxes stuffed with embezzled cash. Ghost payrolls and incarcerated ex-governors. Illinois' culture of "Where's mine?" and the public apathy it engenders has made our state and local politics a disgrace. Corrupt Illinois lays out a blueprint to transform our politics from a pay-to-play--driven marketplace into what it should be: an instrument of public good
