Election candidates convicted of or facing charges of crimes such as rape, murder and attempted murder are almost twice as likely to be elected in India as those with clean records, according to data released Monday by the Association of Democratic Reforms and National Election Watch.


Probably because this bunch of candidates tend to be get more airtime and hence, more publicity. You see, the simpletons wouldn't even know if a goofy-two-shoes were to run in the same election.
