Trump Ad. Is Just Following A GOP Tradition Of Corruption

Trump Ad. Is Just Following A GOP Tradition Of Corruption (This chart is from Daily Kos.)
The Trump administration is already shaping up to be one of the most corrupt presidential administrations in modern American history. But is that really very different from some other Republican administrations? Not really. While Republicans love to bad mouth Democratic presidential administrations, and claim they are the "values" party, the truth is very different.
The chart above illustrates this. Trump is just doubling down on the tradition of corruption established in previous GOP administrations (Nixon, Reagan, Bush II). Since 1968, there have been 120 criminal indictments, 89 criminal convictions, and 34 prison sentences for people in Republican presidential administrations. For Democratic administrations, it is just 3 criminal indictments, 1 criminal conviction, and 1 prison sentence.
Trump could well turn out to be the king of presidential corruption -- but he is far from being the only Republican president to preside over a corrupt administration.
