From the AP:

WASHINGTON — The FBI is grappling with growing numbers of public corruption cases and a surge in mortgage fraud investigations, FBI Director Robert Mueller said Thursday, wondering aloud whether Americans are ‘becoming more crooked.’

In a speech to the American Bar Association, Mueller asked the assembled defense lawyers for help in ‘creating a culture of integrity’ by reporting evidence of wrongdoing by politicians and corporate executives alike.

‘Anyone who follows the news these days and sees repeated references to corporate fraud and public corruption might think the nation is in the midst of a moral crisis,’ Mueller told the defense attorneys. ‘Have we as a society become more corrupt? Or have we in the FBI simply become more adept at rooting out fraud and corruption?'”

We’re becoming more crooked.
