Report: Chicago is America’s most corrupt city

According to a report by the University of Illinois, Chicago’s mayor Lori Lightfoot has lots to be proud. Not only is Chicago one of the most dangerous cities in America, a recent study reported it is also the most corrupt city. Los Angeles and New York came in second and third respectively.

Breitbart explains:

A report by the University of Illinois claims Chicago is the most corrupt city in America, according to a WGN 9 article published Thursday.

“The report is based on data from the justice department, which looked at public corruption convictions between 1976 and 2019,” the outlet said.

In that time period, the city had almost 1800 convictions, more than Los Angeles which had the second highest. New York came in third.

The university’s annual report, co-authored by professor Dick Simpson, also said Illinois is the third-most corrupt state, according to WTTW.
