DC Back as Hot Bed of Corruption

WASHINGTON – After more than a decade of economic progress and a relative lack of scandal, the District of Columbia is back to “enjoying” a reputation as one of America’s most corrupt and financially mismanaged cities.  One city councilman is serving a three year prison sentence while another awaits sentencing after pleading guilty to federal charges of falsifying mortgage documents.  A campaign consultant to Mayor Vincent Gray has admitted that Gray was elected in 2010 with help of over $600,000 in illegal campaign contributions.  All three officials are Democrats.
