(Examiner)   There are actually three states that are more corrupt than Illinois. Can you guess which ones? Nope, New Jersey didn't even make the list of the worst 10   (examiner.com) divider line 147

New York, D.C.(shutup), and California are just better at hiding it.
 
2014-08-10 01:07:14 PM  
Pennsylvania is only number 5?  Philly alone has enough corrupt cops to put us at number 1.
 
2014-08-10 01:24:04 PM  
I had Miss and La but guessed NY for third.

Not surprised at all how red that list is.

I had Mississippi, Alabama, and Alaska.

As bad as PA is, Louisiana is easily twice as corrupt. Which makes you think about bad Mississippi has to be to top them.
 
2014-08-10 02:08:58 PM  
Oh, come on. There's no way Mississippi is more corrupt than Louisiana.

They must not have been counting the politicians in Harrisburg. that alone should have bumped it up to 1.

This.  Fartsylvania's government is intensely f'd up.

I like to think that she actually wasn't my mayor and I was just really drunk for a couple of years and imagined it.

Holy smokes, that is some terrible writing.

I thought she was hilarious.
not for any good reason mind you, but her batshiat insanity was at least fun to watch.

No Massachusetts? List fails
 
2014-08-10 03:41:18 PM  
No Georgia? The Dekalb county CEO got kicked out for corruption and now I hear he's running for sheriff.
 
2014-08-10 03:44:03 PM  
So just be corrupt from the top down like Chicago so that no one gets prosecuted and you are golden, try and clean up your messes and you get tarred and feathered for it?

And let's not forget Governor Deal.

/glad I left

Can't be.  I had a GoP faithful member assure me that only Dem controlled cities and states were corrupt.  They promised that if I studied the situation that I would see the GoP is doing well in pulling the Southern states out of their problem areas.

Once again reality has a liberal bias.
 
2014-08-10 03:48:36 PM  
Chiraq is a completely corrupt, liberal wasteland utopia, but it is not the entire state. Some areas away from the city have decent people and will lower its corruption average.
 
2014-08-10 03:48:37 PM  
Pennsylvania, in a class by itself.
 
2014-08-10 03:49:11 PM  
They dont count the Utah religious mafia?

I suppose there's difference between lying for money and lying for the lord
 
2014-08-10 03:50:39 PM  

hillary: Florida is only 10? The state that brought you Hanging Chad and Stand Your Ground, and we're only at 10?

Florida? You remember us, right?


There's a difference between corrupt and pants-on-head retarded.

it's  img1.fark.net, what do you expect?
those guys can only dream of someday making it to  img1.fark.net level blather.

InterruptingQuirk: New York, D.C.(shutup), and California are just better at hiding it.


D.C. isn't a state.  There are people that want it to be, but it currently isn't.  I'm actually surprised New York was not in the top 10.  Granted, I'm not surprised by any other states in the top 10 being corrupt.

Guessing this list was compiled before the news broke about the PA governor having campaign "adviser" in official meetings and paying a guy $140k a year to not work or we'd be number one

Yeah, I expected the site that gave us WAAAAAAAMPLEEEEEEEEER! to have far better journalistic integrity.

fta Also, police projects are named as a bad of crime and corruption when it comes to bribery.

What does that mean? I don't even.
 
2014-08-10 03:59:27 PM  
South Dakota?  I suppose it made the top ten because one of the 73 residents is corrupt.

This.

Who is the greatest impersonator in history?
 
2014-08-10 04:00:31 PM  
My guess was

1. Pennsylvania
2. Florida (seriously)
3. Illinois

That is silly.  Illinois cannot be more corrupt than Illinois.

I thought it was Rich Little.  Perhaps they are one in the same.
 
2014-08-10 04:04:16 PM  
Alaska?  You'd think once Palin quit a lot of that shiat would knock off.

I think ending it with misusing the term Third World Nation.

What, like Switzerland or Sweden? They weren't very corrupt.

Zarquon's Flat Tire: No Georgia? The Dekalb county CEO got kicked out for corruption and now I hear he's running for sheriff.


We've lived in Dekalb County for a year now.  I'm stunned by just how few people in our 'hood seem to care about corrupt politicians.  They expend far more mental energy thinking about football than they do about corruption.

/such a weird place to live
 
2014-08-10 04:05:56 PM  
I can't believe New York is not on that list. I would wager N.Y.C. alone could pick up the slack for the entire state.
 
2014-08-10 04:06:45 PM  

Nemo's Brother: Chiraq is a completely corrupt, liberal wasteland utopia, but it is not the entire state. Some areas away from the city have decent people and will lower its corruption average.

Your pointless tripe overlooks the fact that Illinois has had a lot of corrupt governors, and Springfield is nowhere near Chicago.

Philadelphia is renowned for government jobs that are all pay and no work.
 
2014-08-10 04:07:17 PM  
I'm guessing long-term single party control plays a large role.  If the government knows that nobody is going to vote for the other guy, it's a license to steal.
 
2014-08-10 04:08:20 PM  
I had Alabama, Tennessee, and... Louisiana.

I probably would have put Mississippi at 4th if they didn't mention it in the headline.

It's the deep south of third-world failure!
 
2014-08-10 04:08:22 PM  
Whoo hoo! I've lived in 3 of the top 5! Lucky me. GTT (gone to Texas)

'Small government' is easily bought off.

Massachusetts is missing?  The crooks on Beacon Hill have some catching up to do.

I always enjoyed how she didn't even try to hide the fact that she seemed to absolutely despise all of us.  Good quality for a mayor.
 
2014-08-10 04:10:14 PM  
I had SC at #3.
I had the other 2 pegged, though.
