All of the following are political reasons why it is necessary for both democratic and authoritarian regimes to fight corruption EXCEPT:
Corruption can lead citizens to question the legitimacy of the regime.
Rampant corruption can limit the ability of the regime to accomplish its objectives.
Battling corruption can make the regime appear more accountable.
