The latest allegations from the federal corruption investigation--that the county auditor accepted $1.2 million in kickbacks and and his aide another $150,000--have alarmed many in the community, mostly for the apparent brazenness of the dealings. If this turns out to have been the standard operating procedure in some local elected offices, what is the ultimate credibility cost for local government? And what, exactly, should be the role of private sector organizations in restoring credibility in public institutions? Tuesday morning at 9, join host Dan Moulthrop for a conversation about the far-reaching effects of corruption.
