Is everything okay with this sentece? Especially with ''besides of'' ?
''Besides of corruption and bad administration, the president has committed several tax frauds in order to manipulate the country's budget and make it look good, and that's enough to oust her.''

    Dermott is right. The sentence even with 'besides' used correctly without 'of' is informal and probably too casual for any serious context, if you are writing it.
