Can't you be good at it at least?

Oh for pity's sake. Here's the thing about political corruption, people expect that politicians will get their beaks wet. I've said for years that the only reason to be on the sewer commission is to get your idiot nephew a job. But there's a certain expectation that the politician will be at least moderately competent and won't do things like get scholarship money for family members in violation of the rules and then write letters asking that the money be sent directly to the family, not to the colleges.

That's insultingly stupid, not to mention smugly corrupt.  This is the kind of stuff that's fueling the rage in the public.  It's so openly wrong, so blatantly droit de seigneur, that it's infuriating.
