Prosecute Corruption in Politics

The cost to our society of corruption drives up the cost of government, by some estimates, as much as 20 percent. Corrupt bureaucrats require payoffs to fulfill basic functions like zoning and road building. Favors by politicians of a donor getting a grant over a non-donor makes the system unbalanced and unfair. Those who abuse our system must be prosecuted and jailed to deter future behavior.

This requires human intelligence, real, vetted whistleblowers, and strong ethics ordinances.
