Mexico faces a “lost generation” of corrupt leaders

Wednesday, August 16, 2017


By any measure, graft in Mexico has reached stunning new highs this year. Over the past five months, three state governors have been arrested abroad while trying to escape justice, and fully 11 of the country’s 32 total governors are currently under investigation or fighting prosecution for corruption.

Today, nearly 90 percent of Mexicans see the state and federal government as deeply corrupt, according to the Mexican National Institute of Statistics and Geography. Citizens regard corruption as the second most important problem facing the country, after crime and violence.
