The Ten Most Corrupt Politicans in U.S. History
With the recent impeachment trial of Governor Rod Blagojevich, we thought it only fitting to take a look at politicians we found to be the most corrupt of all time. There could easily be a Top 100 most corrupt politicians list, but we chose to narrow our focus to 10.
One of the people you won’t find here is Richard Nixon. Despite his well known transgressions, Nixon didn’t line his own pockets. Defining political corruption as the use of power for personal gain, this list includes only those public servants who used their office for financial profit.
