"I didn't want to simply throw up my hands in frustration at all of the corruption. I wanted to see if there is something we can do about it." -Bruce Roter, founder Museum of Political Corruption
From eating oysters on the taxpayers' dime to bid-rigging to promising governmental favors in exchange for cushy jobs for their kids, New York politicians have a record when it comes to ethical lapses. Bruce Roter believes that voter education could make a difference. In this podcast with Diane Donato, Roter talks about his concept for a Museum of Political Corruption, including potential exhibits that would help shine a light on those who have fought corruption.
