美国最腐败的城市是哪家?不是华盛顿

美国最腐败的城市可能让人出乎意料。

美国最腐败的城市可能让人出乎意料。

伊利诺伊大学新近发布的报告显示,全美最腐败的城市正是该校所在地芝加哥。

报告统计,从公共腐败定罪案件来看芝加哥和洛杉矶并列为数量最多的两个城市。1976年到2017年,芝加哥的腐败罪案合计1731例,加州中心地区洛杉矶紧随其后,有1534例,纽约曼哈顿和迈阿密分别有1327例和1165例。

有人可能觉得,美国首都华盛顿特区应该是全美腐败最严重的地方。实际上,同期华盛顿腐败案为1159例,远不及上述城市。不过,可能有人认为关键在于“罪案”的性质。报告仅统计了定罪为刑事犯罪的案例,并没有计入被指有腐败嫌疑的案件。

芝加哥的腐败案占整个伊利诺伊州的82%,最近一起案件的罪犯是市议员爱德华·伯克。今年1月,他被指控利用在市议会的权力勒索,为自己开的私营律师事务所招徕生意。他在该市议会已经担任议员50年。(财富中文网)

The most corrupt city in America isn’t where you might think.

According to a new report from the University of Illinois at Chicago, the most corrupt city in the United States is Chicago.

According to the report, Chicago and Los Angeles topped the list of cities with the most public corruption convictions in America. Looking at conviction numbers between 1976 and 2017, Chicago had the most at 1,731. The Central District of California was a relatively close second, with 1,534 convictions. Manhattan had 1,327, and Miami 1,165.

For those who might have thought that Washington, D.C., would have taken top honors, the D.C. area actually trailed a bit behind. It only had 1,159 convictions during the same time period, although one could argue that the keyword there is “convictions.” The report only looked at those who were convicted of crimes, not all who were accused.

Chicago accounts for 82% of the corruption convictions in Illinois as a whole. The latest culprit was Ald. Edward Burke, who was charged with one count of attempted extortion in January for trying to use his power on City Council to drum up business for his private law firm. He served on the City Council for 50 years.
