This paper analyzes criminal cases to study money politics in a county assembly. We find that money politics is still prevalent in local assemblies. For the 14th to the 16th county assemblies, it is found that about 15% of county assembly members have been prosecuted and 8% have been convicted either during their tenure or before being elected. If we include the cases that involve district captains, the percentages of county assembly members that are prosecuted and convicted during their tenure or before being elected increase to 30% and 20%, respectively.
