The Arthur J. Holland Program on Ethics in Government presents

Soft Corruption: How Ethical Misconduct Undermines Good Government and What to do About It
A book talk with Sen. William E. Schluter

In Soft Corruption, former New Jersey State Senator and vice chair of the State Ethics Commission William E. Schluter (R) provides a fascinating account of the often invisible decisions that lead to ethical misconduct. The author describes his experiences and strategies in combating misconduct over a 40-year political career. He examines examples of corruption involving campaign money, lobbying, conflicts of interest, patronage abuse, and electoral manipulation, all of which contribute to dysfunction in both national and state government. Schluter recommends a specific and comprehensive plan for reform that engages citizens and can be applied in all states.
