Profiles in Corruption by Peter Schweizer

The CRWC Book Club met at the home of Linda Greenberg. The book discussed was Profiles in Corruption: Abuse of Power by America’s Progressive Elite by Peter Schweizer. The profiles are of Kamila Harris, Joe Biden, Cory Booker, Elizabeth Warren, Sherrod Brown, Bernie Sanders, Amy Klobuchar, and Eric Garnetti.

Each in some way abuses the power of their office and/or uses people and/or position to get privilege. They pick and choose issues to their personal advantage not necessarily to the advantage of the people they serve. That said there are probably Republican equivalents.

The book’s strength is its documentation of how each person got to
the top of the heap. Its limitation is its lack of remedies for preventing
corruption. It did stimulate conversation about elite progressives and Alexandria city government.
