Trust in Government NPR recently aired a series on trust in government and we take our own look at that topic today. From a City Council member accused of harassment to a South Carolina Governor accused of abandoning his state, politicians have been the target of distrust and anger from voters. Economic struggles have fueled much of the anger but distrust of government has always existed. Many voters argue that our country was founded on a healthy skepticism of government. We'll explore the notion of trust in government close to home and in Washington, DC.
