Eight States Get F for Corruption

Eight states got a failing F grade for corruption—and not a single state got an A—according to a comprehensive study released Monday by the Center for Public Integrity, Global Integrity, and Public Radio International. The governments are rated according to transparency, accountability, and anti-corruption efforts. Michigan, North Dakota, South Carolina, Maine, Virginia, Wyoming, South Dakota, and Georgia each came in with failing grades in the State Integrity Investigation. New Jersey topped the ratings, and four other states got a B: Connecticut, Washington, California, and Nebraska.
