    The U.N.'s Spreading Bribery Scandal: Russian Ties and Global Reach

    "NEW YORK How widespread is the corruption at the United Nations? The multibillion-dollar Iraq Oil-for-Food (search) scandal was just the beginning.

    Now the issue is becoming the scale of corruption in the U.N.'s normal operations and which individuals and corporations are reaping the benefits of a network of bribery and conspiracy that investigators have just begun to uncover. So far, those identities are still a mystery but perhaps not for much longer.

    Last Friday, federal prosecutors in Manhattan indicted the head of the U.N.'s own budget oversight committee, a Russian named Vladimir Kuznetsov (search), on charges of laundering hundreds of thousands of dollars worth of bribes paid by companies seeking contracts with the United Nations."

    New Jersey politicians can always point to the UN when they need an example of an organization even more corrupt than their own.
