Corruption Complaints Crash Chinese Web Site

Washington Post article that a new corruption web site in China was overwhelmed and crashed. The question is why the web site? There is a new agency in China for fighting corruptoion, National Bureau of Corruption Prevention. China is trying to reduce corruption, the challenge is it goes pretty high in the party. So there is a lot of suspicion whenever corruption charges are brought up there may be a political component. There is a huge amount of anger in China about corruption which the central government is being careful on how they handle it.

Historically speaking, the US used to be much more corrupt (Tea Pot Dome Scandal and Tammany Hall for example) and has somehow gotten to our current state where there is not much corruption and is a society pretty much where laws are obeyed.
