Public Corruption Cases Take Off in Metro Atlanta Under Stronger Enforcement

 An increased focus on public corruption has resulted in a surge in convictions in metro Atlanta, from a county commissioner who swapped a vote in exchange for $30,000 in casino chips to a detention officer who pocketed more than $26,000 by selling drugs at a jail, the Atlanta Journal-Constitution reports.

The newspaper analyzed federal crime statistics and found a recent spike in public corruption cases.

Other cases involve a former Army captain accused of stealing $2.7 million from the federal government and public officials who allegedly took bribes to approve contracts, the Atlanta Journal-Constitution wrote.

Federal authorities credited the surge to aggressive enforcement, not necessarily a rise in corruption.
