On Soft Corruption:
How Unethical Conduct Undermines Good Government and What To Do About It

June 5, 2017
7:00 pm - 9:00 pm

Princeton Public Library, 2nd Floor Newsroom

The author and former New Jersey state senator will be joined by Ingrid Reed, former director of the NJ Project at the Eagleton Institute to discuss his book, “Soft Corruption: How Unethical Conduct Undermines Good Government and What To Do About It.” In the book, Schluter recounts his 50-year fight to expose and reform acts of government misconduct in New Jersey and paints a vivid portrait of public servants who care more about political power and personal gain than the public good.

His book focuses on five areas:
CAMPAIGN FINANCE, LOBBYING, CONFLICT OF INTEREST, PATRONAGE, ELECTORAL PROCESS.
