Most & Least Corrupt States

I ran across this and thought that some folks here may be interested in it.

The methodology may be a bit simple but hey, it's something. Illinois only #5? It's definitely not for lack of trying.

Re: Most & Least Corrupt States

Well, there are many states I have not actually lived in,
but I was born and raised in Illinois and I too am
quite surprised it is only Number 5. If there are 4 states
worse, the residents have my sincere sympathy.

Re: Most & Least Corrupt States

Hmm...CA and MA right next to each other. Having lived in both states, I found the public corruption in MA to be far higher. Maybe its just because they were so up front and "yes we're screwing you...so what?" about it.

Rhode Island only 20th?

It's one of the most corrupt states in the union.

And many very small countries could kick the crap out of them in a war!

small countries? I think there might be street gangs in Chicago that could kick the crap out of them.
