UIC-BGA REVIEW | Stroger slams’ publicity stunt,’ says no indictments on his watch

February 19, 2010 BY LISA DONOVAN Cook County Reporter

Sure, the lineup of Illinois governors and Chicago alderman marched off to prison is infamous, but a new study shines a light on Cook County government corruption.

Consider: Nearly 150 elected leaders, high-ranking officials and people doing business with the county have been convicted in corruption cases ranging from bribery to ghost-payrolling dating back to 1957, a study released Thursday by the University of Illinois at Chicago and Better Government Association found.

“The pervasive pattern of corruption must be changed if county government is to provide honest, effective, efficient and transparent government at a cost the taxpayers can afford,” said Dick Simpson, a study co-author and the head of UIC’s political science department.
