Soccer's Latest Bribery Scandal
Yesterday one of the most powerful soccer officials in the world stepped down amid a bribery scandal in exchange for FIFA sweeping the entire thing under the rug.
The accusations include handing out envelopes with $40,000 in them to officials while they listened to the World Cup pitch from Qatar, a country that inexplicably received an upcoming World Cup.
I still love watching the sport, but let's just say that the officials working in it would be very comfortable working in Chicago and/or Louisiana politics.
