Paul Wolfowitz — architect of the Iraq war, president of the World Bank, and self-styled scourge of corruption — has been caught red-handed in corruption himself, arranging a huge pay raise for his girlfriend and hiding the evidence.

This corruption scandal could be the last straw. World Bank board members are deciding on his fate now–and a massive global outcry could ensure that his presidency comes to an end.
