Chicago has maintained its first-place status, but not for something for which the city should be proud.Isn't President Obama from Illinois? Isn't Hillary Clinton from Illinois?
The city was once again named the corruption capital of America, according to a report released Thursday by the University of Illinois at Chicago.
The judicial district, which includes Chicago, Cook and 17 other counties across the northern tier of Illinois, reported 45 public corruption convictions for 2013 and a total of 1,642 convictions for the 38 years since 1976 when the U.S. Department of Justice began compiling the statistics, the report states.
