13. The guy who got caught in the Cunningham swindle
said that he saw everyone around him grabbing up all the cash and perks so he decided he needed to get his share.

The crooks up in Alaska are as bold as brass and labeled themselves The Crooked Bastards Club and even made up t-shirts and baseball hats.

The corruption these days is so pervasive, I believe to those in power circles not getting involved in graft means you are odd man out.
