"Corruption, corruption, green shoots of it throughout New York. Preet Preeet has been a very busy guy."
Those could be some of the lines from the greatest musical about New York. As Christians believe, corruption is part of the human condition. Therefore the theme would capture the attention of the elite, the middle class, and even the homeless. Everyone would want to take a peek at how public leaders have been allegedly been, oh horrors, self interested to the point of breaking the law. There is plenty of material for the playwrites.
THE NEW YORK OBSERVER reports that U.S. Attorney Preet Bharara predicts there will even be more corruption cases pursued then there have been. Among the alleged miscreants has been New York state senator John Sampson.
I love corruption. I was brought up on it in Jersey City, New Jersey when Mayor Hague politics still dominated. Nothing got done directly. If you wanted your street cleaned on a regular basis you had to implore the parish priest who knew someone who had a nephew working in City Hall. Favors, money, but probably not sex were given in exchange. Those were the good old days when things got done. No one went to jail.
