Skeeters is reading about the current mayor (before Mcginty) being investigated for graft:
Skeeters: If it wasn't for graft, you'd get a very low type of people in politics!
- Even better is when Catherine expresses her views (at first) about graft:
Catherine: You can't really rob the people anyway.
) How's that?
Catherine: What you rob, you spend, and what you spend goes back to the people - so where's the robbery? I read that in one of my father's books.
Skeeters: That book should be in every home.
