    Wall Street 24/7 now that's a credible source, considering Louisiana, and Illinois aren't mentioned one would have to ponder why. The existence of an ethics oversight committee staffed with political cronies does not guarantee a corruption free legislature. Heck the US house and Senate have an ethics oversight committee that is about as worthless as it comes.

    So, it wasn't "Wall Street 24/7" that conducted the study, they just happened to be reporting the results.

    It was the "Center for Public Integrity"

    Nevertheless the fact that Louisiana is not on that list is highly questionable.
    As well as Illinois. California and Nevada?? C'mon...

    My intention was simply to post the results of the study. Not to pass judgement.

    Heck you may be right for all know. But that's what the study says.

    How in the world my home state of Illinois didn't even make the top 8 is beyond me.

    I'm quite proud of the fact that we are the only state with two previous Governors in prison at the same time. :clap2:

    I think these standards are completely screwed up. How do California, New York, Illinios, and Michigan not get in the top ten?
