The Mexican political system is widely believed to be fundamentally corrupt. From literary narratives to academic studies and journalistic reports to official opinions, polls, sayings and folk legends, all seem to nurture an ancient perception that corruption is a part of everyday life in Mexico. It is a kind of permanent, inherent characteristic that permeates all levels of power and government and is part of the political culture of the entire country (Morris 1987, 1991 and 2009; DePalma 1996; Del Castillo and Guerrero 2004; Avil├ęs 2004; ENCUP 2001, 2003, 2005, 2008 and 2012; Sarsfield 2012).
