Description

A Center for Public Integrity investigation of state legislatures reveals that statehouses are full of politicians who use their positions of power to increase their own wealth. The center's investigation, which touched all 50 states, revealed that many state legislators "write law that directly benefit their businesses", "profit by operating nonprofit organizations that receive state funding" and "vote pay raises for government-employed spouses."
