They are all the same. I don't know how many times the ordinary people have chosen those words to describe the Latin american politicians for me, during my travels in the region. What they are referring to is corruption. How politicians regardless of partifärg just seems to want to grab.
I could not help but think of the description when the news came that The korruptionsanklagade expresident Alan Garcia decided to take his own life when police knocked on his door.
