An Albany man is hoping to open a Museum Of Political Corruption.

It's still in the planning stages - but look out for a “Hall of Shame” and a “Hall of Fame.”

Admission is called a “bribe.”

There are two levels, one for kids and one for adults.

The prices are subject to change without notice.

The man behind the plan also wants freshman lawmakers to tour the museum so they can learn what not to do.

He says us when they do open, it's all about location.

“We want it built just a few yards from the state capitol so that the leaders who work there will be constantly reminded of who they work for,” said Bruce Roter, who is behind the idea.

If you recognize the organizer - it's likely because he was behind the successful campaign to bring Trader Joe's to the Capital Region.
