A)How did corruption in city government grow? B) How did people react to this corruption?
i have a test tommorrow and this is our essay question and i cant find it in the book!!!
There's an old saying that power corrupts and absolute power corrupts absolutely. That's the basic idea. City officials were (and in some cases still are) because they can. They distribute enough favors to their constituents that very few people oppose them.
