Advances in information tecknology and the associated process of globalization have not only increased the possibilities for the perpetration of economic crimes, but have also made the impact of such crime harder to contain. Economic crime has the potential to cause loss to a greater number of people and harm both national economies and the global financial system. It has become easier for transnational criminal groups to use the legitimate economy to disguise their operations and to facilitate the rapid transfer of proceeds of crime in order to avoid investigation by law enforcement authorities. One of the prominent activities of organized crime is to obtain profit that is obtained from illicit trafficking in drugs, corruption (forinstance), or other proceds that derived or obtained, directly or inderectly, throuh the commission of an offence are entered into global financial system, so as if they become the proceed of the crime obtained from legal bussiness. Therefore, the effort to fight against money laundering is a dynamic process, and the organized criminals always seek the new method to embody their illegal aim. One of them hands over their financial contribution to local government head election (Pilkada). The practice of money laundering in the Pilkada election very possibly occurs, because of the conditions which gives opportunity to organized crimes group to laundry their money in Piulkada.
