    Speaking from the state that has one of the most corrupt governments in the nation it would seem that corruption is something shared by most of our elected officials regardless of gender.

    Corruption tends to follow power, not gender.

    As more women get into politics and/or senior positions in companies, more women get caught in corruption.

    The statement that "power corrupts, absolutely power corrupts absolutely" is entirely gender neutral.

    What is *NOT* neutral is who currently has the power, and how that is changing.

    Feminism had a big boon a couple of years ago when the first woman appeared on the FBI's Top-10 most wanted.  Yay?
