Is this the world’s most corrupt capital city?

I think we’ve asked this one before. But the question begs repeating. Our vote goes to Washington, D.C. Just because some Republican top dogs have decamped to Texas or to whatever other wasteland they slithered off to hoard their plundered dough, doesn’t mean the American capital is any cleaner.

As a general rule of thumb, the more ill at ease one feels walking alone in a capital city after the sun sets, the more corrupt it is. Ever strolled past the White House or World Bank on a cool Wednesday night? Bucharest might score more points for charm.
