ABSTRACT
This article reports on U.S. Federal Bureau of Investigation efforts to investigate political corruption at all levels of government. Since 2002, the FBI has engineered a surge of more than 40% in public-corruption indictments, with 2,233 cases pending nationwide. Much of that increase stems from 9/11. The FBI turned most of its attention and manpower to counterterrorism and handed off most drug-related inquiries to the Drug Enforcement Administration. This freed up 200 additional agents to combat public corruption.
