Political Corruption

September 05, 2004

The Aug. 30 article "For Good Press, Slip 'Em Pesos," showed the rampant corruption that pervades all parts of the Mexican government, as well as that nation's press.

I hope you will do another report that compares the Mexican situation with ours, in which our elected politicians at the federal, state, county and city levels solicit payoffs from large businesses, labor unions, attorneys and their ilk in order to achieve reelection and then pay them off with favorable legislation, regulations, pork, appointments, access and whatever other means of payback are requested.
