Glenn Simpson talked about the book he co-authored by Larry Sabato, Dirty Little Secrets: The Persistance of Corruption in American Politics, published by Times Books. In the book the authors analyzed why they believe Americans are cynical about the political system. Simpson described various forms of corruption in Congress such as “street money” or “walking around money,” which is the practice of paying community leaders to get voters to the polls, and the purchase of legislative favors through large political contributions. close
