Abstract

Corruption among the bureaucratic elite is still occurs in Indonesia. Many public officials, especially the government elite, are ensnared in corruption cases. This paper tries to answer that problem why the elit corruption such as MT, Kudus District Regent who returns to dealing with corruption cases. Based on these problems, research needs to be done to analysis how it happens. This study uses secondary data from newspapers and interpretive analysis. This result shows that MT has been caught up in a situation of political pragmatism so contrary to the moral ethics of a leader and he is not able to preserve his religious name. Some officials also involved in corruption cases of office buying and selling in which it goes against the spirit of bureaucratic reform and MT as the main actor of that. Political parties also do not set a good example when presenting candidates who have been involved in corruption cases. By this case we need to reformulate how the government in preventing and suppressing corruption will be able to realize a clean and authoritative government. In observing the deeper and wider scope, it needs to be done further research with a qualitative case study.
