Nope. Some of them certainly weren't a surprise.

Nope. But California ... on the LEAST corrupt list? OY! I'd hate to imagine how bad it really is for those on the worst list, because I really don't think we should be a B-.

vote-for4vote-against

Nope, we came in at #3 on the least corrupt list apparently.

Where's Illinois? I don't think we have an ex-governor still living that isn't in prison.

New Jersey is the least corrupt state? I...I don't...what?

Didn't make either list. Which is a nice change, as Texas tends to b in the top 3 on lists you don't want to be on and in the bottom 3 on lists you do.

It's not a list of the most corrupt, it's a list of the highest risk of corruption, due to lack of oversight and accountability.

For example, Illinois could have the most corrupt governors, but they're not at the top of the "most corrupt" list because the laws are in place to put them in jail.

I live in California and the fact that we didn't top the list shows the power of the corruption in this state.

@samstag: That's right! South Dakota (Where I lived for 13 years) is not very corrupt IMHO.

I get a feeling that this is like gun control laws.
The more gun control a state has, and the more restrictive its laws regarding carrying/use of firearms, the more violent crime the state seems to have. Sort of an inverse-reality thing. The more anti-corruption laws a state has, I believe the more corrupt it probably is... there must be a reason they feel the need for those laws.

@omnichad: Agreed, IL has to be the most corrupt, that list is using a different standard for choosing them. As far as good old Blaggo, he is in prison finally. He was assigned a prision number and was ordered to report last week, for his 14 year sentence, which in this state means he should be out next month, lol.

As an IL resident it's obvious our government is broken on every level. We're too good at being corrupt and likely paid to be kept off this list.

@phizzo: My younger brother live in IL and we like to joke that they have got bi-partisan politics down to a science. Both the Republican and Democratic governors go to jail!
