Founded in Illinois in 1923 to fight Al Capone's "ironclad grip on Chicago City Hall", the Better Government Association (BGA) is a non-partisan Chicago-based watchdog group with the mission to "combat waste, fraud and corruption in city, county, suburban and state government." The "Government Payroll Database" section midway down the homepage, allows visitors to check out the paychecks of Illinois public officials. The "Investigations" link allows visitors to read about all the investigations that the BGA is involved in, such as Chicago Public School employees who violate the rules in order to get their children free lunches or the aging locks in Cook County Jail that allow inmates to fight each other when their doors open with little or no effort.
