Adding Muscle to Federal Efforts to Combat Corruption

The chairman of the Senate Judiciary Committee, Patrick Leahy of Vermont, is concerned about the steady decline in the federal prosecution of corrupt government officials. So, along with a Republican colleague, Senator John Cornyn of Texas, he introduced a bill to provide law enforcement with new tools to attack the problem. In Leahy's opening statement at a committee hearing on the bill, he cited two sources to document the reality that such prosecutions were significantly lower: the Justice Department's Inspector General and TRAC.
