most corrupt state...

Anyone else see this garbage? North Dakota give me a fucking break. Looks like it's between Florida, New York, and Illinois to me.http://www.usatoday.com/news/nation/...?se=yahoorefer

I'll show your president the same respect you showed mine.

By one measure, scandal-ridden Illinois is not even close to the most corrupt.

yeah - let's look at high level corruption. How many Governor's from Illinois have been to prison? Surely they would win that contest.

Out of the last two it's 50% but give it a few more weeks and it'll be 100%.

Having spent tim in both Louisiana and Illinois, I would say at the higher levels of power, Illinois is more corrupt, but at lower levels, Louisiana is more corrupt. Hell everyone in Louisiana is corrupt.

This quote might just nail the reason

"Don Morrison, executive director of the non-partisan North Dakota Center for the Public Good, said it may be that North Dakotans are better at rooting out corruption when it occurs."

Perhaps the politicians there don't have the cash or the clout to fend off the convictions. Maybe their lawyers sucked.
